I actually use a complete build of gtk etc so I don't have these problems.
Cairo 1.0.4 is a stable release and should work with gtk and seems to have the
calls I need can you use that as your system cairo ? I don't think 1.0.2 is
usable for this. Be warned that I may need to move to the 1.2x releases at any
time to get some features I need so you should really consider either doing a
full build of gtk etc or carefully upgrading the system version.

Do you have other suggestions  besides downgrading to 1.0.2 that wont work?
