I've been looking.  As far as I can tell, pango's configure thinks a
relevant cairo is installed, yet it doesn't build the cairo backend.  As
time marched on and I dug deeper I came up with more details and realized
the gtk-i18n list was the right place for this problem:


Still, if anyone here has any clues about the problem I don't really care
where the solution comes from. ;-)
