Here's a snippet of the message you're referring to:
"> Only two pc files and two libs, right?"
"No: include files differ."

I said they differ; if you don't trust what I said is up to you to
double check it yourself.

For me history began a little bit earlier :-), more exactly, at this snippet:
If that is true, then the headers should not be different and the
information in the pc can point to the two cairo libs which will be in
/usr/lib/ no problems.

there will be two pc files:

cairo.pc (already created)

cairo-directfb.pc - this can be created inside debian anc copied in the right
place via debian/libcairo2-directfb-dev.install with a line like

debian/cairo-directfb.pc /usr/lib/pkgconfig

the same way it's done in the gtk+2.0-directfb package

(With my poor knowledge of packages and policy) I would use
/usr/include/directfb which is already used by directfb itself.

I think that is a polution of the directfb space, I would go for
