[cairo] Testing legacy X servers in make check

I had to fix a bug in RHEL5 with cairo 1.2 failing to work with 15-bit
legacy X servers.  To reproduce the bug I found that this works:

  Xvfb -screen 0 650x480x15 :1 -pixdepths 15 -render

And a snapshot of the screen can be taken using:

  DISPLAY=:1 import -window root snapshot.png

Thought we may want to add targets to the test suite to test all depths
that we're supposed to support...

Anyway, something for ickle to consider :P, as well as documenting these
two commands in the archives.
