I did the following additional steps and had a successful compile on Kubuntu 
apt-get install libcairo2-dev
apt-get install python-dev

However I can't get the Slackware version to work even after copying over the 
libraries /usr/lib/libcairo* to my slack partition, doing ldconfig, doing 
cmake, and doing make.  Something else is missing.  I get a bunch of libcairo 
error messages. 

I will look for a native cairo package for Slack next.
