That's odd -- as far as I can tell the meson implementation
of has_function() does what I expected it to do, ie
"try to compile and link a little program that uses the
function, and see if it successfully links":
There's some initial cleverness there too, so I guess some
part of that must be what's tripping us up.

In any case, I think we should be doing new checks in
meson.build, not configure.  Paolo, what's the right
way to do a meson "really compile this program and
check it built" test?
