There might have been a bug for a short time where pkgconfig(cairo) got
resolved to cairo-xcb-devel, so it is possible the wrong package got
pulled at some point.

It should not be the case anymore (with a fix in urpmi
prefer.vendor.list), but it won't be fixed automatically for cauldron
users that got the "wrong" package before.
