Oh! Didn't know cairo can be compiled without pkg-config on some
systems. I made it err at configure time if pkg-conif gis not
available. Is it too much to expect pkg-config? In this case though it
doesn't seem to solve the problem since you don't have a xrender.pc
file. If pkg-config xrender fails, cairo falls back to using -lxrender
to link to xrender, which seems not enough in your case.
