So I am tinkering with making an app that uses the taglib library. Currently I installed the library to '/usr/include/taglib/' but when I try to build my app with sudo ninja install it says that it can't find the 'tag_c.h' file in the compiled c code of my app. This 'tag_c.h' file can however be found in the above directory.

The important parts of my meson file look as follows:

dependencies = [
    dependency('gio-unix-2.0', version: '>=2.20'),
    dependencies: dependencies,
    install: true

First of all, how do I solve this problem?

Second of all, is this just a problem on my machine? How do I make sure that other people who install my app also install taglib by just meson building it and have it work right away?
