It's easy.. Make it abundantly clear that a build system, *any* build
system, is expected or required for review. And one way to do that is to
*require* no build system for review. Because if your library can be
reviewed easily without a build system it means the portability of your
code is good. Anything else should be a red flag for reviewers.

PS. I'll keep living the dream when we don't distribute any build system
with our libraries. Or the alternate dream where we distribute with 5 or
more alternate build system specifications.
