Hi Adrian,

This is something I've been trying to sort out as well, via the Crucible
test farm at OSDL.  With the following dependency configuration I have
been able to minimize the number of errors:

 freetype         2.1.9
 librsvg          2.14.3
 ghostscript-esp  8.15.1
 poppler          0.5.3

However, even with this, there are still a few failed tests in the SVG
backend.  It is presumed that by upgrading librsvg to 2.15.*, these
remaining failures will go away, but 2.15 also requires upgrading glib
to latest, which I haven't been successful at doing.
