CONTRIBUTING: remove autotools instructions, add more information about meson

Jan Vaclav requested to merge jv/update-contributing into main


This commit updates the file to remove information about Autotools and add some additional tips for using meson.


As we are deprecating autotools, I think it's a good idea to start guiding people towards using meson and also offering some guidance for users that have only used autotools so far.
