Here's what cairo/README has to say in 1.6.4, (though the main body of
this text has been around since 1.0 I think).
Every rare once-in-a-while someone mentions wishing it would work on
some older version of Microsoft Windows, but nobody has ever done much
to make that happen, (that I recall at least).
[*] The Win32 backend should work on Windows 2000 and newer
(excluding Windows Me.) Most testing has been done on
Windows XP. While some portions of the code have been
adapted to work on older versions of Windows, considerable
work still needs to be done to get cairo running in those
Cairo can be compiled on Windows with either the gcc
toolchain (see http://www.mingw.org) or with Microsoft
Visual C++. If the gcc toolchain is used, the standard
build instructions using configure apply, (see INSTALL).
If Visual C++ is desired, GNU make is required and
Makefile.win32 can be used via 'make -f Makefile.win32'.
The compiler, include paths, and library paths must be set
up correctly in the environment.
MSVC versions earlier than 7.1 are known to miscompile
parts of cairo and pixman, and so should be avoided. MSVC
7.1 or later, including the free Microsoft Visual Studio
Express editions, produce correct code.
