That is a huge project, one which would take many summers and a
hugely dedicated mentor or mentors, even to deliver a demonstration
prototype of reasonable quality.

Designing a correct build tool is incredibly hard. As I like the API
of scons, and we have scons build files for most Boost libraries, I'd
suggest instead helping out with scons-plusplus which is Boost.Python

In truth though, an O(N) scalable but not-painful-to-write-for build
system almost certainly needs a persistently stored graph database.
Which just gave you a hint as to my C++ Now Presentation if I'm
chosen to present ...
