I've tried to build 1.9.4 snapshot, because I wanted to use metasurface. 
It took me half a day. Here is my step by step way:

1) Install mingw using TDM's GCC into c:/mingw
2) gunzip http://cairographics.org/snapshots/cairo-1.9.4.tar.gz into c:/
3) Install msys-1.0.11.exe (from MinGW) into c:/msys
4) gunzip 
into c:/mingw (not into c:/msys !!!)
5) gunzip 
into c:/mingw
6) gunzip 
into c:/mingw
7) gunzip libz-1.2.3-1-mingw32-dev.tar.gz (from Mingw zlib) into 
c:/mingw (http://www.zlib.net/zlib123-dll.zip is not good for this, it 
is for MSVC)
8) gunzip http://cairographics.org/releases/pixman-0.17.2.tar.gz into c:/
9) msys> cd /c/pixman-0.17.2
10) msys> ./configure
11) msys> make install
12) Copy c:/msys/pixman-1/* to c:/mingw (it should be installed into 
13) msys> cd /c/cairo-1.9.4
14) msys> ./configure
15) msys> make
16) Bingo! c:/cairo-1.9.4/src/.libs/libcairo-2.dll exists! Can be 
stripped to make 2495KB -> 473 KB.
