The meson.build files in each example directory is simply to support
building the example as part of the main SDK build, and these should not
be installed with the example's source code and makefile. The exclude of
"meson.build" only filters out the top-level examples/meson.build file,
not the file in each subdirectory.

To fix this, we can build up the list of files to exclude based off the
list of all examples. With this change "find examples/ -name meson.build"
returns no hits when run on an installed instance.

Fixes: e5b95003f1df ("examples: fix flattening directory layout on install")

Including stable on CC for this patch because even though it's removing
files, those files are useless alone, since they must be part of a
larger DPDK build. Therefore I think the patch should be safe to
consider for backporting, especially since prior to the commit in
question the meson.build files were being properly filtered out.
