And python3 of course :)

I've made an attempt to create a PortGroup:

I didn't investigate that patch yet. It could also be a bug in meson
(in case it's still present).

The test for libhttpseverywhere crashes.
I tried to port glib2, but I wasn't able to figure out why pkg-config
isn't found.
I also wasn't able to find the equivalent options to switch between
x11 and quartz.

I believe they are handled in a similar way, but of course they might
be different depending on what the person who wrote the
script wanted to expose to you. So I'm pretty sure that you cannot
simply copy-paste the configure block. Generic options might be
similar, see below.

I did a quick grep for "arch" in meson and not much really turned up.
I would guess that this is something that would be really nice
supporting in the system itself rather than blindly applying all the
flags. Maybe implementing slightly better support in meson itself
would be needed?

You'll probably want WrapMode.nodownload :)
