With autotools I can use an uninstalled but compiled version of meson
(e.g. for testing) by pointing LD_LIBRARY_PATH and LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH
to the $BUILDDIR/lib and $BUILDDIR/lib/gallium respectively. With
meson it seems one always needs to run "ninja install" to get the
actual drivers and libraries somewhere.
It would be nice if meson would act like autotools in that regard by
creating the drivers and libraries in specific directories (also as a
configure option if there is concern about compilation speed).
