Comment(by randy@…):

 I'm sure this was discussed, however, I don't recall it. Anyway,
 why is the experimental XCB backend recommended for this package?

 Additionally, I'll be adding the Pixman package to the book here
 in a few minutes as it is now required by Cairo.

 Lastly, and I know this was discussed, but I cannot remember it
 or find the discussion, but why exactly is X required for this
 package, it will build without it as best as I can tell.
