I know that libsvg does not support SVG Print.

I think that librsvg also does not support it.

That might work, but there's a simpler solution as well. It should be
a quite trivial matter to take something like svg2pdf and make it
accept a list of SVG files on the command line, putting the results
into a single PDF file, one SVG file per page.

The loop would look something like this:

    for (i=0; i < num_files; i++) {
	svg_cairo_parse_file (svgc, file[i]);
	svg_cairo_render (svgc, cr);
	cairo_show_page (cr);

Good luck, and let us know how you fare, (I'd be glad to commit any
good changes you come up with to svg2pdf).
