I understand your worry but I'm not sure we're in any better position
now. At the moment we are all more-or-less rookies of n-1 out of the
n build systems that libssh2 supports. Why not just make it 1 build
system where we are all rookies and can develop together? As it
happens, CMake is pretty straightforward, at least for any uses I've
put it to in the past.

I should put my money where my mouth is and code this up. Time is not
on my side though.
