Disallow --without-system-cairo combined with (implicit) --enable-gtk

As the system gtk libraries may depend on later versions of libcairo.so.2 and
its bring-along libpixman-1.so.0 with the same SONAMEs.  So if it would ever
happen at runtime that our bundled libcairo.so.2 and/or libpixman-1.so.0 get
loaded before the system ones, the system gtk would probably not work correctly.

Ultimately, the bundled cairo can probably go completely.

This reverts 122a1376 "extensions: crude hack
for mysterious cairo link failure."

As discussed at #libreoffice-dev:
Oct 24 10:10:15 <mst__> sberg, caolan, dtardon  any idea what the proper fix is
  for pluginapp.bin? 122a1376  breaks on RHEL5
Oct 24 10:10:17 <IZBot> core - extensions: crude hack for mysterious cairo link
  failure -
Oct 24 10:12:53 <dtardon> mst__, i'd try
Oct 24 10:13:58 <mst__> dtardon, i'm not sure if that is the intent - the
  -lcairo comes from the gtk external so we should use same cairo as gtk i.e.
  system one? but id on't understand why linker won't find the pixman library
Oct 24 10:16:35 <sberg> mst__, I get no build failures in "make
  extensions.clean && make extensions" when I comment out that FIXME in
Oct 24 10:18:59 <mst__> sberg, it only started to fail for me when i removed
  libcairo.so from solver, probably you still have a stale one
Oct 24 10:19:42 <sberg> mst__, in solver/*/lib/? no
Oct 24 10:20:48 <sberg> mst__, but turns out I'm using --with-system-cairo (as
  required by --enable-gtk3), so ignore me
Oct 24 10:22:53 <mst__> sberg, so if i rm solver/unxlngx6/lib/*cairo*
  solver/unxlngx6/lib/*pixman*  it still fails for me, how could system-cairo
  work then?
Oct 24 10:24:13 <sberg> mst__, in that /usr/lib64/libcairo.so has a DT_NEEDED on
  libpixman-1.so.0 (which "our" libcairo.so is missing, I'd assume)
Oct 24 10:24:44 <sberg> mst__, erm
Oct 24 10:41:18 <mst__> sberg, so if i filter out -lcairo in
  gb_LinkTarget__use_gtk then it magically works - are there any problems with
  that approach?
Oct 24 10:47:19 <sberg> mst__, so the root of the problem is that there's two
  different libcairo involved?  (just doing a local build --wihtout-system-cairo
  here, to see what's going on)
Oct 24 10:47:55 <mst__> sberg, i don't think so since i get same problem after
  removing all cairo libs from solver
Oct 24 11:12:11 <sberg> mst__, so the link line for pluginapp.bin contains
  -lcairo twice, apparently dragged in indirectly (via _use_externals gthread
  and gtk, likely), and does not contain "our" -L.../cairo/src/.libs (as it
  doesn't _use_externals cairo), but does contain -Lsolver/*/lib.  Now,
  /usr/lib64/libcairo.so needs libpixman-1.so.0 and there happens to be one in
  solver/*/lib that lacks syms compared to /usr/lib64/libpixman-1.so.0
Oct 24 11:13:43 <sberg> mst__, so this was nicely hidden when all the external
  libs were delivered to solver/*/lib, but in the end I think the bug is to
  combine system gtk with non-system cairo and/or pixman
Oct 24 11:14:49 <sberg> mst__, as long as our cairo and/or pixman have the same
  SONAMEs or exported symbol names as system ones, all hell can happen at
  runtime anyway
Oct 24 11:15:32 <mst__> sberg, but... why then does it fail for me if i don't
  have the cairo/pixman libs in solver?
Oct 24 11:15:57 <mst__> ahhh  -Wl,-rpath-link,$S/instdir/unxlngx6/program <-
  taht must be why
Oct 24 11:17:40 <mst__> is it normal that -Wl,--trace does not print out what
  libraries were found via -Wl,-rpath-link? it only appears to print explicit
Oct 24 11:18:27 <sberg> mst__, because of -Linstdir/*/program
Oct 24 11:20:27 <mst__> sberg, so we need
  -Wl,-rpath-link,$S/instdir/unxlngx6/program obviously;
Oct 24 11:22:08 <mst__> sberg, apparently everything builds successfully when
  filtering out -lcairo from GTK_LIBS, do you think that is the best workaround
  for this?
Oct 24 11:22:14 <sberg> mst__, no, we need to change configure.ac to disallow
  --enable-gtk --without-system-{ciaro,pixman}
Oct 24 11:22:39 <sberg> mst__, similarly to how we already disallow
  --enable-gtk3 --without-system-cairo
Oct 24 11:24:48 <mst__> sberg, that would be sort of pointless, since linux is
  afaik the only platfrom where cairo is used at all - effectvely we could
  remove bundled caior then?
Oct 24 11:27:04 <sberg> mst__, effectively yes, unless it would still be useful
  for some --disable-gtk scenario
Oct 24 11:33:41 <mst__> caolan, cloph does RHEL5 have a sufficiently recent
  system cairo?
Oct 24 11:34:43 <cloph> cairo 1.2.4 on the CentOS 5.9 (well, more like 5.10 now)
Oct 24 11:37:08 <jcorrius> my RHEL6 build uses internal cairo
Oct 24 11:37:47 <caolan> rhel-5 cairo is 1.2.4
Oct 24 11:37:54 <mst__> caolan, the other option i can see is to do $(call
  gb_LinkTarget_add_libs,$(1),$(filter-out -lcairo,$(GTK_LIBS))) in
  gb_LinkTarget__use_gtk which works-for-me(TM)
Oct 24 11:38:30 <sberg> jcorrius, not for very much longer ,)  (it typically
  happens to work by luck to combine system GTK with bundled cairo)
Oct 24 11:38:59 <mst__> thorsten, are you aware of any reason why we must bundle
  cairo on linux?
Oct 24 11:40:05 <sberg> mst__, "<caolan> rhel-5 cairo is 1.2.4" and we only
  check for "cairo >= 1.0.2" in cofingure.ac, so all should be good
Oct 24 11:40:35 <sberg> mst__, "works-for-me(TM)" just by luck
Oct 24 11:41:33 <mst__> sberg, well perhaps guess the real problem is that
  pkg-config spits out a spurious -lcairo for gtk+-2.0 so...
Oct 24 11:42:19 <mst__> ... but of course if a sufficiently good cairo is
  available everywhere we don't have reason to bundle it anyway
Oct 24 11:45:45 <sberg> mst__, at least my /usr/lib64/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0 does
  have a DT_NEEDED on libcairo.so.2, so even if pkg-config wouldn't spit it out
  we would still be in trouble at runtime
Oct 24 11:47:05 <mst__> sberg, at runtime we have this problem for a lot more
  libraries than just cairo
Oct 24 11:47:43 <sberg> mst__, but why refuse to fix the problem, at least for
  cairo, where there is apparently no good reason to bundle it anyway?
Oct 24 11:48:36 <jcorrius> is cairo used on Windows for anything?
Oct 24 11:48:42 <mst__> sberg, since there is no good reason to bundle it anyway
  i don't object to removing the bundled cairo
Oct 24 11:49:38 <mst__> sberg, ... but i can still hold the opinion that gtk
  shouldn't put -lcairo in its pkgconfig :)
Oct 24 11:53:12 <sberg> mst__, since "pkg-config --cflags gtk+-2.0" includes
  "-I/usr/include/cairo", one could argue that cairo is a "re-exported" part of
  that, so should also appear in pkg-config --libs output; one could likely
  argue either way
Oct 24 11:55:27 <mst__> sberg, well but if you're calling functions from cairo
  then you're using cairo directly whereas if you just call gtk functions you
  have no need to link cario
Oct 24 11:56:47 <sberg> mst__, sure, my argumentation depends on that
  "re-exports" argument (which might be thin); anyway, are you going to remove
  bundled cairo
Oct 24 11:56:54 <sberg> ?
Oct 24 11:57:34 <mst__> sberg, i'm going to force it to system in configure for
Oct 24 11:58:13 <sberg> mst__, I have a patch for exactly that already locally
  here, so could push that if you've not done that too already anyway
Oct 24 11:59:00 <mst__> sberg, i havent' finished my freetype patch yet because
  people always distract me on irc so you can push
Oct 24 11:59:01 <sberg> mst__, or, rather, my patch just errors out in the
  --enable-gtk --without-system-cairo combination, so if you have a better one,
  go ahead
