I'm not sure, but I would just wait until you get 9.3. Upgrading is 
painless and far less likely to cause issues.

In this case the Cairo API has changed, this not merely an RPM 
dependency or missing symbols.

Truthfully, there is not much to be gained from enabling cairo now, 
except testing. User visible changes are mostly improved gradients.

I just would hate to see you bust a working system.
