I get:

$ meson test

ERROR: No such build data file as

I used this to build and install it:

$ meson build/ --prefix=/home/jil/gits/wayland-idfix/install/
$ ninja -C build/ install

Since that didn't create the needed meson-private/build.dat, I thought
that might get put in by the CI somehow.

I'll do that.
