Hi all,

I'm looking for a very simple example of getting Cairo to save to an SVG 
file.  I'm working in ANSI-C.

I've gone through the documentation as best I could, I've searched 
Google, mulled over StackOverflow and even cried a little.  So far, I 
haven't been able to get it to work.  Writing a surface to a PNG works 
for me, but for whatever reason, I'm at a loss for the SVG.

I've included a pastebin of the code: http://pastebin.com/bDtFZ9Ww

The environment that I'm working in is Ubuntu server (11 I think), and 
I'm using gcc for compiling.
