I'm trying to install PyCairo on Mac OS X. Or, rather, I've done it.
But it doesn't work.
I've installed Cairo with Mac Ports. I've installed PyCairo with easy_install.
This is what happens when I try to use it:

YellowTracksuit:~ elver$ python
Python 2.6.1 (r261:67515, Jul  7 2009, 23:51:51)
[GCC 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5646)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import cairo
>>> dir(cairo)
['__builtins__', '__doc__', '__file__', '__loader__', '__name__',
'__package__', '__path__']
>>> surface = cairo.ImageSurface(cairo.FORMAT_ARGB32, 256, 256)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'ImageSurface'

There be nothing there! What could be wrong and how do I fix it?
