Sure. Though I am hesitant about having 2 build systems :)

Can you send a PR? I would like to understand how complex is it.
Also, how hard would it be to support more than just openssl?
E.g. on Windows I believe many people are using MS APIs.

For example, it always requires OpenSSL, and it's not prepared to receive compiler options like xslt or iconv. But it integrates good into a CMake build environment and especially good into Microsofts vcpkg framework, in order to get rid of the dependency management.
