[cairo] HELP with making cairo

Yes I did download GNU make and Visual C++ from Microsoft.
I made the project of GNU make, and used it to make pixman library. I 
did have to make a change to the makefile for pixman since @mkdir was 
creating directories named -p and release, and was inside of a loop.
The problem is that I do not know makefiles, and I think the @list is 
causing 'list' to be executed as a DOS shell command, which it is not. 
And this is the same problem as I had with pixman, where mkdir IS a 
command with different syntax than what is specified in the makefile.

One more note is that one needs to run vsvars32.bat prior to using 
Visual C++ from the command line.
