Yup... I accidentally found this PR about half an hour after submitting
mine... Should have searched deeper...

I do need it. If you plan on merging the xcb changes any time soon then
I guess I can wait. On the other hand, if enabling xcb now just for
cairo is not a pain for you, I'd take that option.

I had no idea xcb support was going to be added to the gnome ports
anyway. Since I'was not aware of any other port requiring cairo xcb
support atm, I was torn between disabling xcb by default to avoid
changing the current default dependency list of the port, and enabling
it by default so that the xcb bits get pulled in. I went with the
former... The problem is, I don't know how to check, during building of
the x11-wm/awesome port, for whether cairo has been compiled with xcb
