The version of libsvg-cairo that I have installed from MacPorts does  
not seem to work together with the native GTK+ framework for Macs.  
Reconfiguring gtk2hs still tells me:

* The following packages will be built:
* svgcairo       : no

Although the installer for the native GTK+ framework does not mention  
svg-cairo, it seems to be included:

$ ls /Library/Frameworks/Cairo.framework/Resources/dev/lib/pkgconfig/ 

Or am I misinterpreting the existence of this file?

Trying to force gtk2hs to build svgcairo with --enable-svg complains:  
"librsvg requirement not met".

Installing librsvg from MacPorts failed, but I guess it wouldn't have  
worked together with the native GTK+ anyway.
