Ok, so there are actually two separate problems. First is that they changed the meaning of "ld" cross-variable, meaning that if we fix it for the new semantics, it's no longer compatible with the old version. That can be solved by bumping the required version. However, there is a second problem which is that the most recent version does not work in Travis because it needs higher Python version. I'll need to check if that can be solved.

As a temporary workaround, install the working meson version with
pip3 install --force-reinstall meson==0.51.0

Looks like this issue is not affecting just us, but a lot of other people too, and Meson guys are working on fixing this. So right now I think we should just wait and see what the next version looks like. See

Apparently the above mentioned meson issue was fixed long ago and I can build HelenOS with Meson 0.59.4 just fine.
