#55994: meson: installs_libs no?

 GPL-licensed ports that build with meson become nondistributable, because
 meson uses python36, and python36 uses openssl, and the GPL conflicts with
 the openssl license.

 "ncmpc" is not distributable because its license "gpl" conflicts with
 license "OpenSSL" of dependency "openssl"

 Does meson install any libraries that get embedded into software built
 using meson, such that they would affect that software's license? I am
 assuming that it does not, and that it should therefore use `installs_libs
 no` to indicate that.
