Thanks! I looked at the PR:


And it is already complex and there are a few things
that I feel have to be added (e.g. libxslt support).

If it is OK with you then I would prefer to add a link
to the vcpkg (can you share it?) to the README and website
instead of adding a new build method to the package.
