After updating cairo from 1.12.12-1 [extra] to 1.12.12-2 [testing], pkg-config can no longer detect cairo. This makes it impossible to build e.g. Audacious.

$ pkg-config --cflags cairo
Package gl was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gl.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
Package 'gl', required by 'cairo', not found

It seems to require the mesa package, as it contains `gl.pc`.
