We want to migrate towards Cairo, so disabling it is not the best
solution.  By disabling it, you get an Xft build, which has known
problems with some modern fonts, and no good solutions (since Xft
doesn't seem to be actively maintained anymore).

Let me turn the table and ask you why you need that font? is something
wrong with the default font selected by the Cairo build?
