Just the libraries seems to be enough.  The compilation (with the
correct headers) has already occurred, the trouble arises at link time.
Once linked, the resulting applications should work regardless of
whether the obsolete pixman libraries are present or not.

That sounds good, though I have a vague recollection of some packages
that wouldn't build properly with the libraries moved (so don't delete
them).  Probably everything should be fine if all pkgs are built in a
consistent environment.

Good luck!
