While Ross and friends search for their patches ;) would the attached
patch look acceptable? (I'll put it in the bug if it is...)

I wasn't sure if cairo-features.h would be better for this or not, but
I opted to use config.h since it's really a platform-specific option
(or rather, option not available for every platform), not a feature.

Black magic is good magic ;)
