When I was looking into this topic I found that some projects have
configure which is a shell script that calls meson setup and Makefile
which calls ninja -C build. Other projects switched completely and
removed all files related to autotools, automake, shell, make.

I don't think there is a need for such script as developers usually have
their own scripts to build projects. And for the --system option that
one is actually ported to meson, you can use it like this:

    meson build -Dsystem=true
    ninja -C build
