Cairo is not actually a requirement for Mono. It is a requirement for
libgdiplus. If you want to use the functionality in the 'System.Drawing'
namespace, you'll need to install libgdiplus, otherwise, it is not
strictly necessary to have it installed.

XCB is one of the many backends available to Cairo. I don't think it is
a requirement for having a working Cairo.

As I understand it, as of snapshot v0.1.23, the requirements are:

fontconfig, libpixman, libpng 1.2 and the Xrender extension (if you have
a recent X, you should have it already).
