Maybe oneday it would be worth porting the Wine build system to SCons
(http://www.scons.org/). From "What makes SCons better":
* Configuration files are Python scripts--use the power of a real
programming language to solve build problems.
* Reliable, automatic dependency analysis built-in for C, C++ and
Fortran--no more "make depend" or "make clean" to get all of the
dependencies. Dependency analysis is easily extensible through
user-defined dependency Scanners for other languages or file
* Built-in support for C, C++, Java, Fortran, Yacc, Lex, Qt and
SWIG, and building TeX and LaTeX documents. Easily extensible
through user-defined Builders for other languages or file types.
* Built-in support for fetching source files from SCCS, RCS, CVS,
BitKeeper and Perforce.
* Built-in support for Microsoft Visual Studio .NET and past
Visual Studio versions, including generation of .dsp, .dsw, .sln
and .vcproj files.
* Reliable detection of build changes using MD5 signatures;
optional, configurable support for traditional timestamps.
* Improved support for parallel builds--like make -j but keeps N
jobs running simultaneously regardless of directory hierarchy.
* Integrated Autoconf-like support for finding #include files,
libraries, functions and typedefs.
* Global view of all dependencies--no more multiple build passes
or reordering targets to build everything.
* Building from central repositories of source code and/or
* Ability to share built files in a cache to speed up multiple
* Designed from the ground up for cross-platform builds, and known
to work on Linux, other POSIX systems (including AIX, *BSD
systems, HP/UX, IRIX and Solaris), Windows NT, Mac OS X, and
