The current port versions are 1.10.2 for Cairo and 0.18.4 for Poppler (and Poppler-utils), while the current versions are 1.12.6 and 0.20.5 respectively.

Currently we are in a freeze pending the release of FreeBSD 9.1.  Both 
poppler and cario are dependencies on a lot of ports, and therefore it 
is not a good idea to update them right before a release, in case 
something breaks.
