I think I know where I went wrong, I think cairo does not have xcb support, where do I go to add it though?

Cairo does have the xcb backend enabled in -current.

Lots of X updates in this batch! We were finally able to upgrade to the
latest cairo (including the long-requested XCB backend)

if you are using -current, you can also try this.

I fixed it, I had xcb-utils package made but I forgot to issue an installpkg. I'm in awesome now and loving it!
