Well, let me tell it that way, the build tool is not set in stone.
I see no need currently to even think about a new build tool.
Autoconf/automake serves what it is used for and it does it good. It
would take many work to change to other one.
- From the fact that the man power is very limited, this is a big NO.
On the other hand, I never heard of meson. Nor do I know (without
duckduckgoing) what "JetBrais CLion" is. IF there would be a need for
other build tool, I would more vote for something widely used (ok, cmake
is not that seldom). In the end, the chances would be pretty high that I
would end with automake/autoconf again when sorting the pro and cons.
So, for a new project, that would be something to think about. For a
existing project, there has to be a pretty good reason to switch the
build environment to something other with new bugs and new

No more to say. That is the most valid point here.
