In addition to the other reviews you've seen, it fails to build here
(Rawhide) due to missing build requirements: libpng-devel libjpeg-devel

Unfortunately, this is where reviews sometimes end abruptly (and also
reviews of a chain of packages). As comments on the spec and binaries
built with added libpng-devel libjpeg-devel BR:

* Nothing in the tarball covers MPL, only LGPL is included. If author
  intends to change this to Cairo's licence MPL/LGPL, a %doc file
  ought to explain that.

* -devel package should "Requires: %{name} = %{version}-%{release}"
  not just "%name = %version". Headers and libs ought to stay in sync.

* "Requires:" and "Libs:" in pkgconfig file indicate dependencies of
   libsvg-devel on more -devel packages:

     Requires: libxml2-devel libpng-devel libjpeg-devel zlib-devel

   Pkgconfig files break badly if inter-package  dependencies are
   incomplete.

* Executable %doc files.
