The cairo backend fails to build from source with strict linker flags because it is not being linked with fontconfig. In configure.ac it is wrongly assumed that -lfontconfig will be inherited from Xft, but that is no longer the case:

$ grep ^Libs /usr/lib/*/pkgconfig/xft.pc
Libs: -L${libdir} -lXft

Trivial patch attached.
