If you are set on using etch (stable), which will not see any libcairo2
updates and it is known that 1.2.4 is too old for Scribus then my question is
- why are you building with Cairo in the first place? The solutions seem to
present themselves in the following order:

* Use my etch package built with libart, which works well, or build your own
if you are really intent on doing your own compilation, but still with
libart-2.0 not libcairo2.

* Dist-Upgrade to Sid or wait until Lenny (Testing) will get current libcairo2
(1.4.6) from sid and then dist-upgrade to lenny.

* Backport libcairo2 to etch on your own by doing a rebuild of a source
package or wait until we switch to cairo after 1.3.4 release and I am forced
to start backporting it to etch anyway.

* Pollute your system with stuff installed into /usr/local and watch it crash
and burn eventually.
