Any solution that allows using Ninja as the build tool (which both Meson
and CMake do) is fine by me.  Alternative configuration systems just 
streamline the process, since they already have the 'generating the 
build.ninja control file' part ready to go (and they'd also solve the
'configure takes way too long' issue as well).
