Please do what you need to fix the Makefiles for your platform,
(without breaking them for others of course).
I'm less picky about the contents of the Makefiles than I am about
cairo.h, for example, since end users don't typically look in the
Makefiles so clutter there is not as big a deal.

I would hope you would test everything. As for the possibility of
results being slightly different, you can provide backend-specific
reference images. For example, the SVG backend sometimes overrides the
default reference images such as:
with things like:
Meanwhile, we're in the process of integrating perceptualdiff which we
hope will let us largely eliminate the need for backend-specific
reference images. I'll have more on that shortly I hope.
PS. While we're on the topic of the test suite, I recently ran into
the following problem:
$ make clean
/bin/sh: /bin/rm: Argument list too long
Anyone care to tackle a reorganization of our test suite to fix that
