Hi Travis &al,

> port install automake

> ./autogen.sh --enable-atsui --enable-quartz
> make

I succeed with a different approach:

  - git clone cairo in one directory
  - uncompress the release tarball in another directory
  - copy files that would have been generated by autogen.sh from the  
release tarball (ie, the "configure" script, the files "Makefile.in"  
in various dirs, "libtool", "install-sh" and a few others)
  - run configure as I would normally have

This worked for me.

I know this is a bit uncivilized, but I just wanted to compile cairo  
and couldn't be bothered to find and install the proper versions of  
automake, libtool, and the like.

Hope this helps!
