- i386-netbsd-64int / 5.10.0:
  - FAIL


I've looked into the above recent cpantesters failure of Cairo 1.102
on NetBSD (6.0), and I'm not quite sure of what I've found.

The Cairo Perl module links against libfreetype during the build
process for the module.  I built the module in a copy of NetBSD that I
have running in a VM, and then did an 'ldd' on the resulting
'' file.  In the output of 'ldd', libfreetype is listed twice,
once with the path to the library, and once with 'not found'.

You can see the output from my build of Cairo on NetBSD 6.0 here:

The 'ldd' output is at the very bottom of the gist.

Note that NetBSD 6.0 was just released in October, so I am thinking
that something may have been changed in between 6.0 and the prior
release (5.2).  My next steps from here were going to be to try
building Cairo with older versions of both Cairo and NetBSD.

cpantesters was also sending out error reports for Cairo on
"2.6.32-279.14.1.el6.x86_64", which I've discovered is an updated
version of CentOS 6.0.  I also spun up a VM with CentOS 6.0 to test
Cairo 1.102, but I could not duplicate the errors that were being
generated in the cpantesters report.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
