I got error when I tried to install cairo 1.10.2:

checking whether cairo's image surface backend feature could be enabled... no 
(requires pixman-1 >= 0.18.4
configure: error: mandatory image surface backend feature could not be enabled
===>  Script "configure" failed unexpectedly.
Please run the gnomelogalyzer, available from
"", which will diagnose the
problem and suggest a solution. If - and only if - the gnomelogalyzer cannot
solve the problem, report the build failure to the FreeBSD GNOME team at
gnome at, and attach (a)
"/usr/ports/graphics/cairo/work/cairo-1.10.2/config.log", (b) the output of
the failed make command, and (c) the gnomelogalyzer output. Also, it might
be a good idea to provide an overview of all packages installed on your system
(i.e. an `ls /var/db/pkg`). Put your attachment up on any website,
copy-and-paste into, or use send-pr(1) with
the attachment. Try to avoid sending any attachments to the mailing list
(gnome at, because attachments sent to FreeBSD mailing lists are
usually discarded by the mailing list software.
*** Error code 1

I have run the analyzer and got the same result. Please let me know how to fix 

Thank you,
