Before you start, you should have a look at BuildSystem . It is
used as the configuration engine for PETSc , which runs on more
platforms than you can shake a stick at. It is implemented in Python.
The docs are a bit sketchy, and it still needs work for mere mortals
to be able to use. In any case, I have implemented it for my
software, which you can get with subversion at
There is a configure.py script, but most of the meat is in the python/
Boost list run by bdawes at acm.org, gregod at cs.rpi.edu, cpdaniel at pacbell.net, john at johnmaddock.co.uk
