Things are clearer now.  Initially I adopted Cairo because it's needed by TeX 
Live.  Then I saw a cairomm1.0 package and thought I should it adopt it along 
with Cairo.  This led to libsigc++.  Now that I understand that these are part 
of a bigger GTKmm project, I'm not interested in going further.  I'll keep the 
ones I've already adopted unless someone else wants them, in which case I'll 
gladly give them up.
