As far as OpenBSD is concerned (and my work as maintainer) dropping
autotools in favor of meson in general would be a major PITA.

For the proto case, we actually don't use the autotools build system
for the split packages version, because of the overhead, and the
(relative) simplicity of just writing BSD makefiles for these. I
haven't looked that the merged xproto yet though.
