It sounds like an interesting project.
The subject line of your post says it is a "GNU Package", but I don't see slayer in
the official list. Perhaps you mean it is one that you want to submit to
GNU in the hope that they will adopt it as a package? Or did you mean something
else? Obviously how to it should be laid out will depend on that a lot.
Like you say, lack of documentation is will be a big factor in getting users.
How will people know how to use it, and perhaps more importantly WHY the should
Autotools can indeed be tricky - and a time consuming part of maintaining a
package - but they do make it a hell of a lot easier for the general public
to build, especially on wierd systems.
Lack of features is a concern - but if you have a dedicated user base, even a small
one, you will get requests for them. However, if you don't have decent documentation,
and a reliable and portable build system, then you won't have any users ....
