The current winemaker does not generate or use autoconf.

I've never use SCons either but the advantage of generating regular 
Makefiles is that many many developers are familiar with them. I would 
even venture that with something like 99% open source projects using 
Makefiles there are more developers familiar with Makefiles than with 
SCons scripts. Generating an SCons script would just be totally 
confusing for these developers.
