Meson.build cleanup.

This is a 8 commit patch, but only for a while - after agreeing with
each of the changes, it shall be squashed into a single commit.

I want to make further changes on meson.build (maybe I can end up simplifying
the build system, or just let things more organized in the end) and thought
that starting with a cleanup would be a good first step.

The changes are:

  1. build: set arguments scope to project instead of globally

    If we set arguments globally, it may conflict with other builds - specially considering meson's subprojects feature. Setting to project arguments ensures we are only considering EFL and not leaking unwanted flags.
  1. build: Fix spacing and indent

    Mostly because it is not well standardized during the file - sometimes there's spaces between tokens, sometimes there is not, etc. The same applies to indent.
  1. build: move test environment closer to test commands

    Just as a matter of organization. If we're doing things for tests that don't impact other stuff, then leave it when tests are handled.
  1. build: Remove unnecessary parenthesis and == true comparisons

    Less noisy redundancy: true is already true, and false is already false, no need to re-check. Besides, reading if sys_windows and if sys_windows == true shouldn't have different effects, as the first you can read as "if the system is windows". It gets better when you have not instead of == false, so for an example you could read if not sys_windows as "if it is not a windows system" more naturally.
  1. build: Switch pc_files to dict

    Just thought it could stay a little better (since it works as a dict), specially in the foreach right after.
  1. [removed to a future patch] build: Use meson's warning_level instead of hardcoded -Wall

    This way we ensure this is compiler-independant (and use the correct feature for that, since meson even warns when configuring the build dir).
  1. build: Use language args from add_project_arguments properly instead of a loop

    The language: kwarg from add_{project,global}_arguments receives a list of languages, so no need for that loop.
  1. [removed to a future patch] build: Use '/' instead of join_paths

    As it is recommended by meson since v0.49 (and stays clearer IMO, specially since that's how some languages are adopting path separation, e.g. C++'s filesystem stdlib).
