during last FPC meeting we agreed that we need some standardization

I was working to make guidelines for ninja and meson. For ninja it
doesn't matter from where you build (it's like make),
For make and ninja-build, what works depends on the recipes. I don't
think there are ways to tell in an automated way if out-of-tree builds
are supported or not.
(There are also out-of-tree builds which still write to the source tree.)
