When I tried jhbuild what I found strange that it does not detect the

You mean for installing dependencies?  This requires root privileges, so
jhbuild can't do it on its own.

Besides, we used to have some distro-specific dependency check in the
past, but I someone (marcopg?) ripped it off, probably because it was a
pita to maintain.

I am talking about this:
As I told I do not know how difficult can it be to automate so if it would be a lot of work then of course you should not put too much work into it. BTW text like "the dependency check will fail if you don't have a DISPLAY set" does not mean too much for Windows people like me (I did manage to google the answer so it was not a question).
