libgccjit is an external package the same way libjansson is an external
package (at least right now I don't know of a GNU/Linux distribution
that ships libgccjit with their gcc package. I could be wrong). So the
similarity of

--with-json requiring libjansson (not some package called json)
--with-native-comp requiring libgccjit

does make sense to me. Just my 2c.
