I have a branch for building haiku with meson, when I was trying to compile
neither the scons build nor the autotools build seemed to compile on a Haiku VM
instance (x86_64), that was a few months ago though, so maybe its fixed.
Our plan is to remove autotools from mesa, probably this year. I'm thinking if
things look pretty good through the 18.0 release cycle I'll probably propose
marking autotools as deprecated for 18.1 and propose removal in 18.2. I'm not
going to block you guys using autotools or NAK anything, I just want you to be
aware that we're trying to consolidate down to just meson and android.mk files.
I can respin the haiku patches and CC you if you're interested in looking at
You might also want to see if you guys can update your meson, at least last time
I checked it was 0.42, and I fixed the pthreads stuff in 0.43 so that -pthread
and -lpthread are never added by meson.
