Do you need to install Cairo?  Unlike ATK, Pango, gdk-pixbuf, and GTK+, Cairo comes with Snow Leopard, at least:

	$ ls /usr/X11/lib/libcairo.*
	/usr/X11/lib/libcairo.2.dylib	/usr/X11/lib/libcairo.dylib

I'm not sure whether it comes with Leopard - I'll look at it when I'm at work and can more easily boot my development machine from its Leopard partition.

Also, do you need PCRE with newer versions of GLib?  I think we use GLib's PCRE routines if available.

We might want to put this either in README.macos or in the Developer's Guide.
