Short answer is no, unless you build yourself 2 libraries (or are you
using both in the same program?). Long answer is we should be able to
do this but it needs a bit more work to fix it up. My change was just
intended to better document the build options, quartz + xlib havent
been buildable together since at least 1.3.14.

I've not looked into splitting up cairo-boilerplate as Vlad described
earlier in the thread; but changing something that's used all over
cairo seemed like a Bad Idea with 1.4 imminent. Unless someone more
familiar with that jumps in and does it right away, its not going to
be in 1.4.
