Pango / GTK+ are definitely targeted at no-fontconfig Cairo, I'm hoping
that we can eventually eliminate the use of fontconfig for the GIMP,
etc, as well using Cairo for client side rendering.

PNG is, as I'd consider it, part of the core Cairo API, and useful
for a lot of simple "hello world" type things, so I think it should be
included in builds.
