FWIW, I have a patch, which I posted originally as part of the meson thread,
that makes the meson build work correctly even with SIP enabled. The trick is
basically to change the absolute references to libraries to relative ones.

Except for a small amount of complexity during install, I don't think this has
a whole lot of downsides. Making the install relocatable imo is pretty nice.

I guess I should repost that for 17...
