We have a drop of 0.3.0 cairo as part of the libgdiplus sources and cairo is 
being statically linked into libgdiplus. Don't try to use an external 
version. One day after 0.3.0 was released, the cvs version already wasn't 
compatible with 0.3.0 anymore, particularily some of the font things that 
changed broke us.

We're waiting for the API stable version to come out before we attempt to 
move libgdiplus to a newer version of cairo.
