Actually here I think the correct thing is rather for me to remove the
requirement for pixman from the cairo.pc I distribute in the
cairo-dev-1.6.4 "package" (zipfile). You don't really need anything
pixman related to use cairo. cairo is built as a shared library (DLL).
libpixman is built as a static archive and linked into cairo. Anybody
who uses cairo need not know anything about libpixman. cairo's public
headers do not include pixman headers.
I wonder if something could be done upstream in cairo for
this, like putting the pixman requirement in the .pc file only if a
static cairo library is built? Or should I just add that editing of
cairo.pc as one step in my build script for cairo from now on?
