Cairo can be compiled in the SDK quite well. It just doesn't perform
all that well on the device. I tested it a bit some time ago, and
didn't get too engouraging results. My benchmarking app was not too
optimized though, and I now am pretty sure it didn't relfect the
actual Cairo performance so I think it's worth a shot to try it.
Specially since the latest Cairo should perform much better than the
one I tested it with.

It all depends how performance-critical your app is really.
