I think the situation here is more like external/skia needing a specific 
compiler unrelated to the compiler used for LO itself, similar to how 
some other external projects need a specific build tool unrelated to 
LO's gbuild.  (And where you wouldn't want a release build to use cmake 
but a dev build to uses gbuild for such a project.)
