Then you ow;don't be dependent on libel.  Do you have any energy to take this approach?  It would take a few days, but it would be great to say goodbye to the current unix/linux build system.

please consider what it takes to get a source package into a Linux distribution. E.g. downloading sources at build time is not allowed for most of them (maybe even actively forbidden), and bundling of libraries is generally discouraged. As far as I remember these were two of the attributes when trying to build the macOS VM during one of my last flights. ;)
