Installation of libsecret

If Valgrind-3.15.0 is not installed, fix a file refering it:

sed '/valgrind/d' -i egg/egg-testing.c

Install libsecret by running the following commands:

mkdir bld &&
cd bld &&

meson --prefix=/usr -Dgtk_doc=false .. &&
ninja

Now, as the root user:

ninja install

To test the results, issue: ninja test, after the package is installed. The test suite should be run from a local GUI session started with dbus-launch.
