Compiling on solaris 9, 
needs more includes besides #include <X11/extensions/Xrender.h>
else types undefined
e.g. tons of:
/usr/openwin/include/X11/Xutil.h:117: error: expected specifier-qualifier-list before 'Bool'

this works for me:
#include <X11/Xlib.h>
#include <X11/extensions/Xrender.h>

Then cairo builds.

To do make check, perf/Makefile linking needs -lrt for sched_yield

then some passes, various fails...

FAIL: check-def.sh
FAIL: check-plt.sh
2 of 4 tests failed
[249]    image-rgb     text_similar_rgb_source-256    FAIL: cairo-perf
1 of 1 tests failed

PASS: check-pixmanint.sh
All 1 tests passed
PASS: check-headers.sh
PASS: check-cairoint.sh
