New version of gvim? Pango is Gnome's framework for internationalised
text (bidi, strange fonts, etc.), Cairo is a vector drawing library
(like DPS or Apple's Display PDF (Quartz?)). All text in Gtk is now
rendered through Pango, so everything that depends on Gtk in any way is
going to depend on it.
It doesn't seem to be in Debian yet.
