I think you are imagining that this is a serious problem when I'd bet

If you want users to help you improve your software, then why are you
treating the build scripts in a special way?  The ultimate source code
for the build scripts and Makefiles are the ones you say you don't
want to distribute.

It seems to me that you are telling your users:

  help me fix bugs

  just don't expect to be able to fix bugs in the build system

Why are you doing that?
