Comment(by gdalziel):

 I don't recommend the use of xcb with Cairo. xcb in Cairo is highly
 experimental and is only there in order to be previewed. There is a crash
 in the Cairo testsuite using xcb 0.3.5 (compatibility of previous versions
 unknown) on the test large-font-xcb-argb32. Are there any objections to
 the removal of --enable-xcb?
