      In other words, even if you got a release, you couldn't use it.
      As far as I can tell this is completly wrong... Wayland can optionally use the GL accelerated Cairo but it's not at all a requirement afaik. There's a lot of graphics driver features that it does need that aren't supported by most drivers yet though - I'm pretty sure it only works on Intel graphics cards at the moment.

        Have you ever even tried to compile it? Wayland fails configure without Cairo with GL support. There's no switch to disable the check that I've found.
