It's better if you include the cairo list also in your reply (e.g. use
reply all).

You should be using PKG_CONFIG_PATH.
To check whether you have set it up correctly, you can call pkg-config
manually. Something like
  pkg-config --libs freetype2
should give meaningful results.

It's just that it makes your pkg-config search path a bit longer than necessary.
