Cvpcb, footprint viewer frame uses now Cairo canvas


Hi All,

In commit 15e0771, I added the support of GAL canvases in the footprint
viewer frame of CvPcb.

There are no option to switch to Legacy canvas or Opengl canvas, because:

- Legacy canvas does not work on GTK3
- Cairo canvas avoids issues that sometimes happens in Opengl.
It can be slower on some installs, but in a footprint viewer this is not
a problem.

I tested it on W7 and Linux Ubuntu/KDE.

Please test on others platforms.
