Those are the last lines of the configure output:

cairo will be compiled with the following surface backends:
  Xlib: no (requires Xrender http://freedesktop.org/Software/xlibs)
  Quartz: no
  XCB: no
  Win32: yes
  PostScript: yes
  PDF: yes
  glitz: no
the following font backends:
  FreeType: yes
  Win32: yes
  ATSUI: no
and the following features:
  PNG functions: yes

I have Freetype 2.1.10 from gnuwin32. I used cairo-1.0.2.
I think the dependencies are there.

To sad, i want to use cairo for a small project at school, teaching
 graphics programming and using pdf output for print.

Can someone help me with a compiled version or tell
me a link where i can download.
