Do you really need to make QEMU add an extra build dependency
just to use a different build system? From my end that seems like
just unnecessary pain for us (we're going to need to ship libslirp
as a submodule for a while until it's been around long enough to
be in stable distros, so its build dependencies will get added
to QEMU's build deps).

Is the standalone project going to provide a shared library
or just a .a static library? (ie are you confident enough in
the long-term stability of your API and ABI to do the shared
library yet? the prudent approach might be to start with just
the .a...)
