Thanks for the confirmation. Do you know what changed in Meson that
makes it *require* setuptools? As I explained in the cover letter of my
Python 3 Setuptools series, meson (at least in the version we currently
have in Buildroot) uses setuptools if available, and otherwise falls
back to distutils, which is why it has been working well so far without
a python3-setuptools package.
