Cairo is a multi-platform library providing anti-aliased
vector-based rendering for multiple target backends. Paths consist
of line segments and cubic splines and can be rendered at any width
with various join and cap styles. All colors may be specified with
optional translucence (opacity/alpha) and combined using the
extended Porter/Duff compositing algebra as found in the X Render
Cairo exports a stateful rendering API similar in spirit to the path
construction, text, and painting operators of PostScript, (with the
significant addition of translucence in the imaging model). When
complete, the API is intended to support the complete imaging model of
PDF 1.4.
This package contains the shared libraries.

* Disable experimental GL/EGL support. It doesn't bring much and
causes problems in platforms where the GL and the EGL/GLES stacks
are from different vendors, which is the case in some embedded
platforms, particularly in the ARM world.
Break weston versions that use the gl/egl symbols.
