I don't really see why a .def file is necessary at all ... when I 
built for Win32 last week, I just added something like:

#define cairo_public __declspec(dllexport)
#define cairo_public __declspec(dllimport)

To cairo-features.h. Then defined (in the visual studio project
settings) BUILDING_CAIRO. That removes all the worries about whether
the .def file matches the particular configuration.
