These are tested on Linux (with "git rebase -x make", so individual commits
compile on their own) and Windows with MSYS2 and MSVC through Jenkins. I
can't test MacOS.

Yes, can do. I'm going to investigate vcpkg as well, since it has cmake
integration, so it reduces to "tell vcpkg that we need these packages, and
tell cmake to talk to vcpkg". My initial experiments were promising, it
seems to be missing oce and ngspice, and I'm unsure about the status of
wxpython, but everything else seems to be there.
