 Using an internal version of cairo is on purpose and will not change 
 for the forseeable future. This avoids dependency issues we have 
 experienced in the past, amongst other things. Since cairo is 
 statically linked into libgdiplus there is also no disadvantage to 
 the user.

+Note that eventually we must use the system cairo version by default,
+otherwise we won't be able to interoperate with other libraries that
+use it (including Gtk+). It's just that at this time upstream cairo is
+not fully ready for the SWF needs and it's little used so
+interoperation has little benefit over the burden of requiring
+everyone to build their own version of libcairo.
