This is a weird call for testers.

So in our quest for push Xorg on FreeBSD further, we are looking for 
people to test cairo 1.12 primarily with the old Xorg stack. We know 
that the graphics with the 2.7.1 intel driver are horribly broken (lots 
of artifacts) so people don't need to test that, but what is the state 
of the other xorg video drivers with cairo 1.12? If problems arise after 
the update, a screenshot and details about installed ports and your 
hardware should be enough.

While this CFT is focused on the non-WITH_NEW_XORG that should not stop 
people that are using WITH_NEW_XORG from trying it out. The Intel/Radeon 
KMS drivers shouldn't have any problem with cairo 1.12.

To apply the patch do the following:
Download the patch from [1].
cd /usr/ports
patch -p0 < /path/to/cairo-1.12.16.diff
rebuild cairo

We are also interested if people are still using 8.x for there desktop. 
Is there a specific reason for not updating to 9.x or 10.x?
