OK, that could work.

But that's a problem. It would mean that cairo_show_text and
cairo_text_path would not be functional at all.

Now, you might be arguing that that's exactly what you want. But if
so, what you're saying is that you'd like to be able to compile cairo
without it's toy text API, and that would definitely be something new,
(perhaps not without precedent though---we do allow cairo to be
compiled without PNG support which is quite similar to the toy text
API in one way).
