after downloading libgdiplus release gunzip, when i run ./configure, I get following error:

checking for BASE_DEPENDENCIES... yes
checking for CAIRO... no
configure: error: Package requirements (cairo >= 1.6.4) were not met:

No package 'cairo' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables CAIRO_CFLAGS
and CAIRO_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

Please advise.

Thanks and Regards

You need to install the cairo library:

On OSX: "brew install cairo"
On Linux/Debian: "sudo apt-get install libcairo2-dev"
