[Gimp / libjxl plugin] How to get the JPEG-XL plugin?

Good morning

I could install the libjxl library, built from the sources, as described here.

To get the Gimp plugin, I followed indications from here and here.

Gimp development files are installed.

Now I cannot believe that I am the person who detects that the source files of the plugin are faulty, because CMake reports missing lines and variables. In addition, I master neither CMake nor the clang-compiler.

My command to build the plugin was:
:/[libjxl sources]/plugins/gimp$ cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DBUILD_TESTING=OFF -DJPEGXL_ENABLE_GIMP_SAVING=YES  .
which is certainly wrong, but all that I can come up with.

Does anyone know something?

I preferred to simply install the binary, but as Gimp3.x will include jpeg-xl support, might also just wait for that.

P.S.: While playing around with all those libraries and compressors I noticed, today, that Gimp already supports exporting to WebP. Noone had told me.
