[other solutions]

A hack suggested by Behdad I tested the night of the release: at line
742 of cairo-boilerplate.c, just before the #endif (for

#undef Picture
#define Picture CairoQuartzPicture
#undef Cursor
#define Cursor CairoQuartzCursor

You'll be able to build without the --disable-xlib, and take your pick
of whether to use atsui or ft in your build. But testing this I ran
into the extend-reflect crash and ran out of time to get it into the
release. Which is probably for the best, I'd like to fix it properly
as Carl described.
