Indeed, I get this list:

     MSVG  SVG       rw+   ImageMagick's own SVG internal renderer
      SVG  SVG       rw+   Scalable Vector Graphics (XML 2.7.3)
     SVGZ  SVG       rw+   Compressed Scalable Vector Graphics (XML 2.7.3)

I'm using the openSuSE 11.2 package for ImageMagick.  It seems I have
to complain to them that rsvg is not compiled in -- and I have to
compile ImageMagick by myself...
