I remember, ATSUI font backend and Quartz graphic backend
are classified as experimental and they are disabled by
default. Please add options as:

$ ./configure --enable-atsui=auto --enable-quartz=auto

If you want to use cairo as a library for X11 applications,
I recommend to install freetype by yourself. Apple's
/usr/X11R6/lib/libfreetype comes from XFree86-4.4.0
and its configuration is non-standard.
