I looked at this a bit. One trick is that our current .pc files are
generated by magic in the configure script depending on the actual
backends compiled. So that magic doesn't support generating a .pc file
for a non-compiled backend.

Vladimir had the idea of just making the build copy cairo-quartz.pc to
cairo-atsui.c after generating it, but I think Behdad's decision was
to just change pango.

Behdad, am I misremembering anything here? Is there anything else we
want to change in cairo for this?
