CMake's Ninja generator was contributed and is maintained along with
the other generators.  It is tested on CMake's dashboard just like
any other generator.  Of course there could be bugs in the generator
or in ninja that are not covered by either test suite.  VTK may
encounter such bugs but should not be required to work around them
in order to "support" ninja-based builds (but may optionally do
so as a temporary solution).

We should not ask ninja developers or those who contributed and
maintain CMake's Ninja generator to build all of VTK to find the
problem.  We need a minimal example to provide to them.

If someone encountering the problem can narrow down a dependency
failure to an example test case then the problem can be reported,
diagnosed, and addressed in CMake or ninja itself.
