Yes, I just checked, it is set to true (default)

And, as you say, system cairo is pulled by libxul, despite having left 
out "ac_add_options --enable-system-cairo":

timtas at coutinho:~$ ldd /opt/firefox/libxul.so  |grep cairo
	libpangocairo-1.0.so.0 => /opt/X11/lib/libpangocairo-1.0.so.0 
	libcairo.so.2 => /usr/lib/libcairo.so.2 (0x00007f3554643000)

So far, no crash expierienced.

Kind regards
