Meson doesn't export any function to get the default suffix but they
have clear definition of the default suffixes:

    'By default, for shared libraries this is dylib on macOS, dll on
    Windows, and so everywhere else.'

As we don't care about Windows in this case we can hard-code .dylib in
meson or in source code. With meson you would do something like this in

    if host_machine.system() == 'darwin'
      conf.set('MODULE_SUFFIX', '.dylib')
      conf.set('MODULE_SUFFIX', '.so')

The conf variable is then used to generate meson-config.h which is
included in config.h

Or as Dan suggested you can do #ifdef somewhere in source code.
