electronic tuner won't do it, since they only make sense if you use meantone tuning

Not entirely true:

You can get electronic tuners in which you can set the temperament.

If you have an equal temperament tuner with a scale marked in cents, there there are sites on the internet which will tell you, or enable you to calculate the adjustments to make from ET for various other temperaments. I have created such a chart for just intonation (based on C), though mainly for the sake of curiosity.

Final adjustments should always be made by ear anyway, but using an electronic tuner can significantly speed up the tuning process.
