Tor made a binary for cairo 0.6 available here:
But unless you just want to use it with WinXP (and maybe 2k too), better 
wait a bit. The text rendering still doesn't work with Win98/ME.
(I'm currently hacking a "fallback" win32 backend to handle text on 
Win98/ME, that I hope to get ready soon and submit as a patch)

Here I just got the sources from the CVS, typed ./autogen.sh (in MSYS), 
then make. Other than some minor library issues (seems that you can't 
change -lpthread to -lpthreadGC2 for some parts without editing the 
Makefile by hand), everything went fine.
