    Just tried building Mesa (just radeonsi and radv) using Meson+ninja and Debian's build example as a starting point. It's blazing fast on 8 core Ryzen 7 2700X! Quite noticeably faster than using autotools. What exactly speeds it up so much?

      Nothing. autotools are just slow.

        This. It's actually funny how autotools projects like GnuTLS are discouraging compiling from Git instead of tarballs because without pre-bootstrapped autotools setup (includes caches) in tarball building is really painfully slow.

        Portability to esoteric platforms always comes back up when these things get discussed.
