You might find it easier in the long run to solve that problem by
putting the $prefix/lib/pkconfig where "make install" put the .pc file
as part of your PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable, such as:

The definition of PictStandardA1 should be coming from a header file
located as X11/extensions/Xrender.h. And cairo should be trying to
find that by looking for an xrender.pc file.

If you're missing those then you can get the lib/Xrender module from
the x.org sources. See here for (many) more details:


And again, configure should be failing with helpful error messages if
it can't find what it needs. So there's always a bug in configure if
it lets you get to a point like this where something cannot be found
at compilation time.
