thanks Micah..  i'm not sure if i want to exclude cairo from the build.
i'm not very aware of what is it exactly - i know it's a graphic library -
but i think it has to do with the graphical interface of eclipse. it was
needed for firefox 1.5 too....
the system is a 2 weeks old freebsd 6.0 release. no current or stable..
as far as archives i searched google mostly and the freebsd java
archives.... i'm aware of the eclipse list - just wanted to avoid
subscribing to another one - i have more then 50 now - and hoping that
somebody here knows about it. or on the java list...

apparently the issue is not a very widely experienced one. maybe only
recently the cairo 1.0.2 port was marked as broken....
