I was the metaconfig maintainer for several years.

While (IMO) it "did better" than autoconf for quite a few years, I bailed on
it several years ago because it was not suitable (at that time) for srcdir
!= builddir, and that was something I needed Badly.  To my knowledge, it
still does not handle srcdir != builddir.
