Comment(by glynn):

 Replying to [ticket:1970 hamish]:

 > on Mac OSX the ./configure script comes up with a few errors, and
 possibly doesn't enable all rendering options that could be enabled
 because it tries to use the pkg-config program.

 AFAICT, there isn't any problem (other than the noise). If you don't have
 pkg-config, then you need to specify --with-cairo-includes, --with-cairo-
 libs and --with-cairo-ldflags manually, but the failed attempts to run
 pkg-config shouldn't affect anything.

 XRender support is only meaningful for an X11 version of cairo (and AFAIK,
 there hasn't been any movement on having the wx GUI make use of it even
 when it's available).
