On one hand I agree, Make is the de-facto standard and we should respect
that, but on the other hand every time I try and use it I have to read the
manual or nick other peoples makefile code. 

SCons on the other hand is several orders of magnitude more intuitive, at
least to me, and it's also more portable as SConstruct files don't tend to
rely on tons of UNIX shell utilities like Makefiles do. For Winelib that's
a big deal.

So I'd be broadly supportive of adding support for generating SConstruct
files to winemaker although we should still keep and maintain the Makefile
support too. But I don't have time to work on this myself.
