** 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
** QUICK AND DIRTY HELP **
--------------------------
How clean out the build and config and start fresh:
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)
ninja -C build dist
How to change prefix:
meson --prefix=/path/to/prefix . build
How to install in a specific destination directory for packaging:
DESTDIR=/path/to/destdir ninja -C build install
How to build with verbose output (full commands run):
ninja -C build -v

You will need normal build tooling installed such as a compiler (gcc
or clang for example), pkg-config, ninja, any relevant pakcage-dev or
package-devel packages if your distribution splits out development
headers etc.
Depending on where dependencies (like efl), you might have to set your
`PKG_CONFIG_PATH` environment variable like:
```
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:
```
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 will need to enusre that the destination library direcytory (e.g.
`/usr/local/lib` is in your /etc/ld.so.conf or /etc/ld.so.conf.d/
files and after insgtaling anything that installes libraries you
re-run `ldconfig`.
You might also want to add the destination bin dir to your environment
variable PATH like:
```
export PATH=/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin
```
Normal compilation in /usr/local:
```
