here comes meson
a new shiny buildtool that currently completes in the total of ~ 4 min.. 1 min. conf time 2:30 min. build time Where autotools takes: 1:50 min. conf time 3:40 min. build time. meson was taken because it went quite good for enlightenment, and is a traction gaining system that is also used by other mayor projects. Additionally, the DSL that is defined my meson makes the configuration of the builds a lot easier to read. Further informations can be gathered from the README.meson Right now, bindings & windows support are missing. It is highly recommented to use meson 0.48 due to optimizations in meson that reduced the time the meson call would need.

11In autotools there have been a few flags that are used to disable loaders. In meson the following four disbler arrays are used:
12
13 emotion-generic-loaders-disabler
14
15 emotion-loaders-disabler
16
17 ecore-imf-loaders-disabler
18
19 evas-loaders-disabler
20
21Autotools options that are converted are:
22
23 --disable-poppler -> Disable pdf loader
24 --disable-spectre -> Disable ps loader
25 --disable-libraw -> Disable raw loader
26 --disable-librsvg -> Disable svg loader
27 --disable-xcf -> Disable xcf loader
28 --disable-xim -> Disable xim loader
29 --disable-scim -> Disable scim loader
30 --disable-ibus -> Disable ibus loader
31 --enable-xine -> Disable xine loader
32 --enable-libvlc -> Disable vlc loader
33 --disable-librsvg -> Disable svg loader
34
35The following options are dropped as they did not affect compilation
36 --enable-lua-old
37 --enable-cancel-ok
38 --enable-debug
39 --disable-quick-launch
40 --enable-tile-rotate
41
42The following options are merged into the pixman option
43 --enable-pixman-font
44 --enable-pixman-rect
45 --enable-pixman-line
46 --enable-pixman-poly
47 --enable-pixman-image
48 --enable-pixman-image-scale-sample

51--disable-valgrind Is dropped, and handled due to the build profile, this can be handled with --buildtype release or plain.
