I found that the configure script for Gnu Emacs v26.3 is looking for the
package "gtk+-[23].0" and this Linux (Chromebook version of Debian)
doesn't have that package, so I can't 'apt install' it.  It also doesn't
seem to have gtk-dev.  I see that I got cairo-5c installed (along with
dependencies), but I don't see libcairo-dev (but I do see libcairo2-dev
which is installed.  Even so, configure is not finding what it needs
cairo and doesn't build with cairo.
