It really sounds like ubuntu has some really old version of cairo installed.

Googling a bit, it looks like ubuntu 10.04 has libcairo2-dev version
1.8.10, and afaik you need at least cairo-1.10 for the whole
cairo_rectangle_int_t thing.

And quite frankly, I don't know old cairo history well enough to say
how that should be done in the pre-1.10 days. Nor do I have a system
that old installed. Somebody who knows cairo better would need to
figure it out.

Or you'd need to update to a newer version. Looks like cairo 1.10 made
it into Natty Narwhal.
