Hello Frans,

I think this means that Meson will be looking for ../meson.build while
running in the build/ directory.

Correct,

$ meson --help
usage: meson [-h] [--prefix PREFIX] [--libdir LIBDIR]
<snip>
             [directories [directories ...]]

How else would you point to the parent directory? It's just like cmake in this regard.
