Xorg migrated from autotools to meson

with 21.1 major release done, xorg has killed its long lived autotools based build sytem in favor of meson in process they have been able to remove ~6000 line of code and configure speed ups with a modern build system. Meson has become delight to use over past couple of year in my personal experience too. I like cmake too but today if I were to write a new piece of software, I would certainly consider using meson before anything for its build system.

Iā€™m never sad to see autotools go :slight_smile:

Build systems should never be this complex!
