Installation of GNOME Screenshot

First, fix building with newer versions of meson:

sed -i '/merge_file/{n;d}' data/meson.build

Install GNOME Screenshot by running the following commands:

mkdir build &&
cd    build &&

meson --prefix=/usr --buildtype=release .. &&
ninja

This package does not come with a test suite.

Now, as the root user:

ninja install
