Reason for closing:  Won't implement
Additional comments about closing:  Problem domain has been solved for decades by standards like $PKG_CONFIG and $CC.

Specialized cases that don't fit into this would have to be handled on a case-by-case basis anyway and are thus highly unsuitable for the meson package itself as they won't actually work for any but a handful of cherry-picked cases.
