    "make" and library

    My current c++ application is compiled by calling "make", and invoked by calling "./fileName.bin".
    Now, I want to add the functionality of cairo library into the application. Note that the the program written specifically
    for testing cairo (outside my application) is compiled by
    "g++ -o fileX $(pkg-config --cflags --libs cairo) fileX.cpp"
    and invoked by "./fileX".
    Now, I dont know how to link cairo library to my application that is invoked by calling make.
    I added the following into my application:
    #include <cairo.h>
    #include <cairo-pdf.h>
    int myPDFdrawing() {
      cairo_surface_t *surface;
      cairo_t *cr;
      surface = cairo_pdf_surface_create("pics/mojFajl.pdf", 500, 648);
      cr = cairo_create(surface);
      cairo_set_source_rgb(cr, 0, 0, 0);
      cairo_select_font_face (cr, "Sans", CAIRO_FONT_SLANT_NORMAL,
      cairo_set_font_size (cr, 40.0);
      cairo_translate (cr, 0.0, 150.0);
      cairo_move_to(cr, 100.0, 500.0);
      cairo_show_text(cr, "Disziplin ist Macht.");
      cairo_move_to (cr, -100, -110.5);
      cairo_line_to (cr, -180, -130.5);
      cairo_set_line_width (cr, .05);
      cairo_stroke (cr);
      return 0;
    I tried invoking "make $(pkg-config --cflags --libs cairo)", but this is not appropriate.
    I would appreciate your help on this.

    This is the content of my Makefile:
     STXXL_ROOT      ?= /home/laptop/stxxl-1.2.1
    STXXL_CONFIG    ?= stxxl.mk
    include $(STXXL_ROOT)/$(STXXL_CONFIG)
    # use the variables from stxxl.mk
    CXX              = $(STXXL_CXX)
    # add your own optimization, warning, debug, ... flags
    # (these are *not* set in stxxl.mk)
    CPPFLAGS        += -O3 -Wall -g -DFOO=BAR
    # build your application
    # (my_example.o is generated from my_example.cpp automatically)
    fileA.bin: fileA.o
    	$(CXX) $(CPPFLAGS) $(CXXFLAGS) fileA.o -o $@ $(STXXL_LDLIBS)
    I guess it should be adapted somehow?
