Description Thomas Green 2009-03-11 12:49:58 UTC
The 'modetest' test application that is compiled (but not installed) with libdrm includes optional cairo support, starting with version 2.4.5. I'd imagine that this could be enabled/disabled with a USE flag, rather than letting the configure script detect whether cairo is present - which is what seems to happen now.
Comment 1 Rémi Cardona gentoo-dev 2009-03-12 16:23:01 UTC
Not really a bug. The "modetest" utility is not installed so it makes no sense for us to check for cairo or to add a USE flag. And even if upstream offered the option in ./configure, I think I would hard-disable it: the potential for cyclic dependencies is too important.

Thanks anyway :)
