[cairo] 24bit and/or MSB first Xservers

Hi all,

Has anyone successfully used Cairo on anything other than a Xfree/Xorg X 

Two cases where we are seeing problems are Sun's X server and Hummingbirds' 
Exceed Win32 X server. On both or applications usually die with a BadMatch 
(in XPutImage or XGetImage). Also, on Servers that have MSB first, cairo 
treats it as if they are LSB first, thereby swapping red and blue.

My understanding of the inner workings of cairo and libpixman sadly is quite 
limited, so I wouldn't know where to start trying to fix this.
