Meson port - integrating merge request !35

This commit contains the meson build system changes from is a combination
of commits from that branch, with most of the meson port done by
Félix Piédallu - with some adaptations to sources and build by Øyvind Kolås.

We need a transition phase where meson works on top of autotools to
switch many of the CI systems gegl is involved in over to meson.
