Introduce the cairo-missing library
The cairo-missing library provides the functions which are needed in
order to correctly compile cairo (or its utilities) and which were
not found during configuration.
Fixes the build on MacOS X Lion, which failed because of collisons
between the cairo internal getline and strndup and those in libc:
cairo-analyse-trace.c:282: error: static declaration of ‘getline’
follows non-stati$ /usr/include/stdio.h:449: error: previous
declaration of ‘getline’ was here cairo-analyse-trace.c:307: error:
static declaration of ‘strndup’ follows non-stati$ ...
So, appears to be for providing system functions that are missing on
