Passing a bindir different from prefix like e.g.

meson --prefix=/usr --bindir=/usr/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/bin
--includedir=/usr/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/include --sysconfdir=/etc
--datadir=/usr/share --mandir=/usr/share/man --default-library=shared
-Ddebug-gui=false -Dudev-dir=/usr/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/lib/udev
-Ddocumentation=false -Dlibwacom=false -Dtests=false

to meson results in an install error later on:

--- /usr/bin/libinput-list-devices
--- /usr/bin/libinput-debug-events
--- No need to do anything for preinst phase
>>> Checking whether we can merge to / ..................
!!! Expected '/usr/bin' to be a directory but found a symlink to a directory

It should respect the bindir passed via meson configure and install to
/usr/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/bin instead of /usr/bin.

There was aleady a patch proposed which still applies to 1.10.0 and fixed the

For completeness the patch is attached as well.
