I have read the mesa-dev list constantly regarding this change.

The deprecation process was painful and issues in the meson
build system still turn up occasionally.

19.0 will still have a configure option to opt-in for autotools.
In this upcoming release they have worked out all known issues
for meson but I would in no way want to use meson for older main
releases because these changes are not backported offically.

So, either keep autotools for 8.3.3 or wait for 9.0 and switch to meson.

Just my 2 eurocents.
