Just to give everyone an example of the above mentioned problem:

I'm sure the Crypto++ project will strongly oppose requiring anything
beyond standard libraries (including OpenMP) [1].
So if the code forces other libraries to use AutoConf, this code can't
be included in Crypto++ and we (= the Crypto++ team) have to code Argon2
from scratch which I think is highly undesirable for all parties.
