Removing Meson as way of building dcd, d-scanner, etc

Debian uses meson to build things D as well and it appears to fit
elegantly with their package creation tools, related work is already
in place. Fedora it appears uses meson too. My understanding use of
meson integrates with the rest of Debian package creation system and
more or less automates the process... anything to make use of meson
more straightforward makes the packaging and distribution of D tools,
libraries and applications more likely, and should be positive with
regard to the adoption of things D within Linux infrastructure (Debian
+ its many derivatives and Red Hat / Fedora). Reiteration of previous
post. More with meson (and to assist its use with things D) please,
not less.

(reiteration of earlier posts:)
