Last I tried rsvg it was a real pig to build on OSX and the result
was something that was still very far from being compliant, certainly
not enough for my purposes. Has it gotten a lot better recently?

Same thing with ImageMagick, last I looked you got sensible results
from simple examples but it was nowhere near compliant. This is for
an automated process that will be processing all sorts of arbitrary
SVG, I need something that I can trust (and preferably fix easily if
there's a problem).

I'm looking at its drawing APIs, it might be a viable candidate but
I'd like to explore alternatives first because they docs are unclear
and I have dreadful memories of working with it :)
