The thing I was apparently missing is that debian/rules
specifies this option:
... which is apparently a way to tell meson to globally
change the behaviour of how auto is dealt with.

This was likely added to avoid surprises that could happen
with automatically detected features and mistakenly missed
build-dependencies (eg. when someone updates to a new upstream version
but forgets to bump the minimum required version of a build-dependency
and suddenly the feature is disabled without anyone noticing).

Mystery solved... I'll check something into git (without testing it)
and hopefully next upload will get further on hurd. Please feel free
to test it (and suggest additional fixes). See:
