Shouldn't the garnome installer be downloading and installing libpng and glitz packages itself?
Since neither of those were on my system. I had to go and manually install them outside of the garnome installer.
Same is true for the "gettext" package.

cairo explicitly depends on pkg-config (see LIBDEPS), and usually there
at least has been a valid need to do so. Anyway, you just deliberately
used a systems executable, whereas the GARNOME provided ones are

Right, so libpng couldn't be found in your PKG_CONFIG_PATH. Most systems

are happy with the stuff set in gar.conf.mk. Since your libpng lives in
a rather strange place, the easiest and IMHO best fix is, to simply
adjust PKG_CONFIG_PATH in gar.conf.mk and append your local dirs there.
