Do container images being tested currently include sources, build 
dependencies or intermediate build results in addition to the installed 

Note: with e.g. Docker, removing those after build step doesn't reduce 
image size.

You need either to do the removal in the same step, like this:
RUN git clone --branch ${TAG_LIBDRM} --depth 1 \
     https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mesa/drm.git && \
     cd drm  &&  mkdir build  &&  cd build  && \
     meson --prefix=${INSTALL_DIR} --libdir ${LIB_DIR} \
       -Dcairo-tests=false ../  && \
     ninja  &&  ninja install  && \
     cd ../..  &&  rm -r drm

Or use multi-stage container where the final stage installs just
the run-time dependencies, and copies the final (potentially stripped)
installed binaries from the build stage.
