Yes, and the message itself, which I admittedly abuse for testing a
local header file.  I don't want something dramatic, just a simple

Well, yes, but I want exactly the opposite!  My problem is not related
to the generation of `ftoption.h` in the build directory.

(1) Edit manually the `ftoption.h` file (in the *source* directory).
    This is the standard way how debugging options are manipulated in

(2) Call meson; it should parse `ftoption.h` and check whether
    `FT_DEBUG_LOGGING` is set.

(3) Check for threads support if yes.

There shouldn't be any drama (i.e., not showing a red 'NO') if the
test in (2) is negative.
