** COMPILING and INSTALLING **
------------------------------

Meson is the build system used for this project. For more information please
see:

    http://mesonbuild.com

----

Normal compilation in /usr/local:

    meson . build
    ninja -C build
    sudo ninja -C build install

For meson build generic options:

    meson --help

For a list of project specific options supported:

    cat meson_options.txt

To set 1 or more project specific options:

    meson --prefix=/path/to -Doption=value [-Dother=value2] [...] . build

To display current configuration:

    meson configure build

The above will only work after at least the following is done:

    meson . build

How to change prefix:

How to install in a specific destination directory for packaging:

    DESTDIR=/path/to/destdir ninja -C build install
