Did you consider scons? It's a build system which uses python as a
language. Therefore it's not horrible, and pretty flexible at the
same time.

Due to my current lack of time I'll not advocate scons here too much.
I'll just say what springs to my mind now: it works well on all
platforms, from MSVC to gcc on IRIX, and doom3 development was done
with scons.

Leave other praises out, and please rather test it, if you wish.

For instance writing that with python should be possible. I'm not
good at python, but I can imagine writing this sort of thing.

best regards
