I wonder how this is supposed to work ... even if I use cmake with 'Unix Makefiles'
I do not see how the resulting binaries will work out of the box

  xzgrep -i ^execute texlive.tlpdb.xz | grep AddFormat | grep -ic luametatex

messages about missing format files as I see are not what most users expect.
And most user are not able/willingly to search in the documentation how to
generate the missing formats.
