Do you mean `meson configure --help`? That doesn't run any of the options from
the local build, it just shows the meson global options.

`meson configure $builddir` does run the config script, at least with 0.47.2
this works fine even with a missing dependency (I set gallium-omx to tizonia and
it works).
