System.Drawing doesn't use Cairo directly.
The glue library is inside System.Drawing source tree and is
included in the mcs build process.
If you have Cairo installed (from packages or CVS),
"make && make install prefix=..." in the mcs folder should also
build and copy the glue library to the mono library folder.
