Depending on where dependencies (like efl) are installed, you might have to
set your `PKG_CONFIG_PATH` environment variable like:
```
```sh
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib/pkgconfig
```
Also note that some distributions like to add extra arch directories
to your library locations so you might have to have more like:
```
```sh
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/local/lib64/pkgconfig:/usr/local/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/pkgconfig:/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib64/pkgconfig:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/pkgconfig
```

You might also want to add the destination bin dir to your environment
variable PATH (see documentation on your shell PATH variable) such as:
```
```sh
export PATH=/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin
```
Normal compilation in /usr/local:
```
```sh
meson . build
ninja -C build
sudo ninja -C build install
```
For meson build generic options:
```
```sh
meson --help
```
For a list of project specific options supported:
```
```sh
cat meson_options.txt
```
To set 1 or more project specific options:
```
```sh
meson --prefix=/path/to -Doption=value [-Dother=value2] [...] . build
```
To display current configuration:
```
```sh
meson configure build
```
The above will only work after at least the following is done:
```
```sh
meson . build
```
### Quick build help
How clean out the build and config and start fresh:
```
```sh
rm -rf build
```
How to make a dist tarball and check its build:
(must do it from git tree clone and commit all changes to git first)
```
```sh
ninja -C build dist
```
How to change prefix:
```
```sh
meson --prefix=/path/to/prefix . build
```
How to install in a specific destination directory for packaging:
```
```sh
DESTDIR=/path/to/destdir ninja -C build install
```
How to build with verbose output (full commands run):
```
```sh
ninja -C build -v
```
