Could this be done similar as in Borg where you specify the lisp,
directories build steps etc. in the configuration file.
In case of Borg that it .gitmodules which would also be used in a
similar way.

Source isn't used as is but processed by the packages build-system.
But the user also needs to take not that all the necessary tools such as
make or ninja are installed.
