CairoSample expects to find the Cairo header files, import libraries and DLLs in a subfolder named
extern\cairo-windows-1.15.12. You can download and extract the package automatically by running the Python 3 script
setup-win32.py. If you don't have Python installed, download and extract the package by hand.
Install the Cairo headers and libraries using MacPorts.
sudo port install cairo
