You should get pangocairo by nature of pango finding cairo when pango
is compiled. So the configure output of pango is probably giving you
Checking for cairo... NO
And the fix is to make sure that when you configure pango that your
PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable points to the directory in which the cairo.pc
file was installed. Something like:
Where cairo was configured with --prefix=$prefix.
I have seen a couple of other people struggling with similar "missing
pangocairo" problems recently when trying to build GTK+. So one option
for the pango people to consider would be to make missing cairo
without --disable-cairo (or whatever) be fatal.
PS. By the way, the answer to this problem from the GTK+ camp is
likely to be that one shouldn't try to compile GTK+ and its
dependencies by hand anyway, and people should use something like
jhbuild instead. Personally, I don't find it that hard to build GTK+
manually, but you might look into using jhbuild as one option.
