Perhaps of interest, the developer who set this Tiger VM up is one of the developers of cairo. He did it specifically so cairo could continue to support 10.4 Tiger well into the future. So it appears the request Ryan added to the cairo portfile to have people express interest if they use it on 10.4 has borne fruit.

See this thread for more if interested: <https://lists.cairographics.org/archives/cairo/2017-January/027836.html>
