Yeah that's starting to look like the problem, the meson port was 
previously using $PREFIX/lib/... rather than $LIBDIR/...

 From Ephy's meson.build:

> libexecdir = join_paths(prefix, get_option('libexecdir'))
> pkglibexecdir = join_paths(libexecdir, 'epiphany')
> webextensionsdir = join_paths(pkglibdir, 'web-extensions')
