Can you be more specific about the problem you ran into building GTK+?

It should not be depending on getting FreeType or fontconfig cflags
from Cairo.

There have been proposals to add a separate cairo-ft.pc as a convenience
to give the CFlags and *libs* you need to use the functions in 
cairo-ft.h. Just the CFlags aren't enough: to make use of the functions
in cairo-ft.h your program will also need to use fontconfig and/or
FreeType functions, and as such needs to link against these libraries
