I understand your frustration and anger.  Unfortunately, such is life in
a Linux-centric open source world, where most developers don't care much
about portability any more.

However, the OpenIndiana community is so small that we don't want you to
"silently go away."  Instead, with a little patience and cooperation it
is quite possible that you get the stuff you're interested in building
to actually work.  Packaging the results would be a separate step.

There are several sources of patches for FOSS apps available for illumos
and hence for OpenIndiana.  There are many people here and in the more
generic illumos mailing lists who have built things using meson.

So if you have a specific problem, you are welcome to describe it here,
including quoting the actual error message, and I am sure people will
have a look.
