Pycairo uses the same install method as cairo - GNU autotools.
The INSTALL file has the details, its basically:

    $ python -c "import sys; print sys.prefix"
      # make a note of the python prefix
    $ ./configure --prefix=<python_prefix>
    $ make
    $ make install       # may require superuser access
