The most appropriate way *would be* to use the measure transport, but
that right now works only to transport the measure of a segmente on a
circle :-(

However you can just:

- build a circle centered at M with radius given by the length of AB
(circle by center and radius)
- intersect the circle with the line l1
- select the right intersection point.
