      Drop autotools · 9837f974
      Marc-André Lureau authored
      Maintaining 1 build system is hard. Maintaining 2 is even harder.
      
      It seems the meson build system is now in good shape to replace
      autotools. Like many desktop projects, let's move entirely to meson
      and drop autotools support.
      
      Known changes:
      - generating changelog files in the dist tarball. This is not strictly
        required, and can be added back later.
      - generated files are not included in the dist tarball. In some ways,
        this can be considered a good thing.

      Add support for building with meson/ninja · 7a87356b
      Eduardo Lima (Etrunko) authored
      In a comparison with current autotools build system, meson/ninja
      provides a huge improvement in build speed, while keeping the same
      functionalities currently available and being considered more user
      friendly.
      
      The new system coexists within the same repository with the current one,
      so we can do more extensive testing of its functionality before deciding
      if the old system can be removed, or for some reason, has to stay for
      good.
      
      - Meson: https://mesonbuild.com
      
        This is the equivalent of autogen/configure step in autotools. It
        generates the files that will be used by ninja to actually build the
        source code.
      
        The project has received lots of traction recently, with many GNOME
        projects willing to move to this new build system. The following wiki
        page has more details of the status of the many projects being ported:
      
          https://wiki.gnome.org/Initiatives/GnomeGoals/MesonPorting
      
        Meson has a python-like syntax, easy to read, and the documentation
        on the project is very complete, with a dedicated page on how to port
        from autotools, explaining how most common use cases can be
        implemented using meson.
      
          http://mesonbuild.com/Porting-from-autotools.html
      
        Other important sources of information:
      
          http://mesonbuild.com/howtox.html
          http://mesonbuild.com/Syntax.html
          http://mesonbuild.com/Reference-manual.html
      
      - Ninja: https://ninja-build.org
      
        Ninja is the equivalent of make in an autotools setup, which actually
        builds the source code. It has being used by large and complex
        projects such as Google Chrome, Android and LLVM. There is not much to
        say about ninja (other than it is much faster than make) because we
        won't interact directly with it as much, as meson does the middle man
        job here. The reasoning for creating ninja in the first place is
        explained on the following post:
      
          http://neugierig.org/software/chromium/notes/2011/02/ninja.html
      
        Also its manual provides more in-depth information about the design
        principles:
      
          https://ninja-build.org/manual.html
      
      - Basic workflow:
      
        Meson package is available for most if not all distros, so, taking
        Fedora as an example, we only need to run:
      
          # dnf -y install meson ninja-build.
      
        With Meson, building in-tree is not possible at all, so we need to
        pass a directory as argument to meson where we want the build to be
        done. This has the advantage of creating builds with different options
        under the same parent directory, e.g.:
      
          $ meson ./build --prefix=/usr
          $ meson ./build-extra -Dextra-checks=true -Dalignment-checks=true
      
        After configuration is done, we call ninja to actually do the build.
      
          $ ninja -C ./build
          $ ninja -C ./build install
      
        Ninja defaults to parallel builds, and this can be changed with the -j
        flag.
      
          $ ninja -j 10 -C ./build
      
      - Hacking:
      
        * meson.build: Mandatory for the project root and usually found under
                       each directory you want something to be built.
      
        * meson_options.txt: Options that can interfere with the result of the
                             build.

      tests: Shut up warnings about unitialized struct fields · 7d119752

      Build complains about lots of unitialized fields in TestCase definition,
