When you say the "figures" are you talking about the images or the examples?

The examples should not require cairo so far as I'm aware (however that
might change if we have examples with graphs in them).

In general,  I'm inclined to agree, that the --without-cairo flag 
probably brings more cost than benefit.

Checking that everything builds with all combination of flags becomes
rapidly intractable.  Testing N configure flags, requires having 2^N
nightly builds ...
