Didn't I fix something like this recently?

If there is no pango_context_new() then that Context::create() should be

pango_context_new() is there but for use by backends only (these need to set
a PangoFontMap for the context, which we can't). The definition is
surrounded by #ifdef ENABLE_BACKEND [...] #endif. Context::create() will be
removed with my next patch that completes pangomm documentation
(well, almost :) I noticed some other small bugs and API problems which I
also corrected. I'm about to write the ChangeLog entry...
