[cairo] Building Cairo with only Image and PNG surfaces

Hi Guys

Is it possible to build Cairo as a Windows DLL only with the image and 
PNG surfaces?  Following a recent recommendation (and an earlier one) to 
just use the image surface for all drawing and then blitting the result 
to the screen, I thought it would be best to build a DLL based on just 
the image and PNG surfaces - especially since my target is Windows CE 
and it's painful getting everything to build for it.

However, I get errors from cairo-system saying that it is being compiled 
with no support for a WIN32 backend.

I'm trying to use Visual Studio 2005.
