Patch for meson

Ports framework assumes that Meson files are kept in ${WRKSRC} which might not
be true for all projects.

Tested with archivers/zstd with locally patched Makefile

Not sure why it's assigned to sunpoet@ , sorry about that.

Without putting a pathname in a PR synopsis, the auto-assigner tries to guess what the intention was.  It's not always correct.  Solution: always include <category>/<portname> in the synopsis, or, in this case, the pathname.

Hi Koop,

Can you have a look at this?
Comment 4 daniel.engberg.lists 2020-06-08 10:26:34 UTC
"Hint: The syntax of meson is meson [command] [arguments] [options]. The setup command takes a builddir and a srcdir argument. If no srcdir is given Meson will deduce the srcdir based on pwd and the location of meson.build"
Ref: https://mesonbuild.com/Running-Meson.html

Previous revision of documentation lists it more clearly.

"Hint: The syntax of meson is meson [options] [srcdir] [builddir], but you may omit either srcdir or builddir. Meson will deduce the srcdir by the location of meson.build. The other one will be your pwd."

This seems to be more or less discouraged usage so I'll close it for now as you can work around it in most cases.

^Triage Corret (more precise) resolution
