I get exactly the same error on an ubuntu edgy build for a standard 32 bit
intel machine.

The problem is that the API for cairo.h is different from what pycairo

I changed:

cairo_get_dash_count (o->ctx, &count);


count = cairo_get_dash_count (o->ctx);

In pycairo.

This is clearly a problem in pycairo and the sort of stupid bug we're all
constantly fighting with. We abiword hackers are no better and have broken
the sugar-jhbuild a few times.

Is there a way to set up some sort of frozen state of known working builds
of each of the modules?

the alternative is to constantly shame the maintainers of the libraries to
keep their builds unbroken.
