Meson is a research project to determine what would be the optimal syntax and implementation of a next-generation build system. new
a package that process output from building software, primarily focused on packages using Autoconf and Automake, and then generate a HTML summary file, containing links to each build log. The output include project name, version, build host types (cross compile aware), compiler host name, date of build, and indication of success or failure. The output is indexed in many ways to simplify browsing
keeps track of all file access during a build process and then generates gnu-make dependancies.
Autodep-gmake is a ehanced gnu make wich use the autodepend shared object natively
interviews the user, then creates a source package for a new program which follows the GNU programming standards. The new package uses autoconf to configure itself, and automake to create the Makefile. `make distcheck' succeed
autotools-idl is a patch for automake and some autoconf macros which add support for IDL and C++ ORBs. They try to provide full support for compiling IDL files to C++ stubs and skeletons.
a cross-platform, cross-compiler native makefiles generator. It takes compiler-independent description of build tasks as input and generates native makefile
a make replacement written in Tcl
simplifies C and C++ development on Linux systems. build will scan your source code files for the required elements (lib's and includes) to create a Makefile script then it will automatically generate it
a tool permitting to audit a software build procedure to extract and archive a lot of useful information on the build
Build Interceptor is a collection of scripts for recording the .i files generated during a build of C or C++ programs with the gcc tool-chain. No modification to the original build process is necessary.
a system to automate the compile/test cycle required by most software projects to validate code changes. By automatically rebuilding and testing the tree each time something has changed, build problems are
pinpointed quickly, before other developers are inconvenienced by the failure
Builditis is a build system for C/C++ projects that reads build information from the source files of the project. It flags files for rebuilding based on a checksum. Program builds are organized by directories. It only supports executable builds for now.

ccbuild is like a dynamic Makefile. ccbuild finds all programs in the current directory (containing "int main") and builds them. For this, it reads the C++ sources and looks at all local and global includes. All C++ files surrounding local includes are considered objects for the main program.
cm is a build management tool similar in spirit to make. It features a clear, powerful language, separate macro and variable namespaces, user-defined procedures, support for multiple build modes and multi-pass builds over complex directory hierarchies, while providing useful abstractions to support compilation on multiple operating systems.
a cross-platform, open-source make system. CMake is used to control the software compilation process using simple platform and compiler independent configuration files. CMake generates native makefiles and workspaces that can be used in the compiler environment of your choice
Colormake is a simple wrapper that makes the output from make more colorful and error messages easier to spot.
The configure project is a Makefile generator which uses project description files to create simple Makefiles.
a build and maintenance tool for source code packages. It is built on top of the standard open source tool Automake. It relieves the package maintainer from the burden of having to write complex build instructions by hand
Cook is a tool for constructing files. It is given a set of files to create, and recipes of how to create them.
Cppmake is a front-end to make that builds C++ programs with less effort than writing makefiles manually. Building a C++ program with cppmake is similar to compiling a Java program. The idea is that you specify a classpath and cppmake will automatically find all the classes needed by your program. Once found, all of the classes are compiled and linked into an executable or library.
The Crossplex package of make macros simplifies your builds. It allows you to organize many different products under a logical structure, making systems of any complexity easy to specify.
Daybodep scans C files for header inclusions so that they can be written to the Makefile indirectly.
distmake is a distributed, parallel, GNU make compatible make program. distmake reads a Makefile, and distributes builds targets over a set of build servers on the network.
a fast dependency generator for C/C++ files
Fubsy is a tool for building software. In concrete terms, it lets you conditionally (re)build targets from sources, based on which sources have changed. Typically, targets and sources are all files in a directory tree. In theory, they can be any resource on a computer.
a shell-script that allows for a more easy building of programs for sources
Generic Makefiles is a collection of makefiles using GNU tools (GNU Make and GCC). They provide automatic dependencies and easy configuration for simple (flat directory) C or C++ projects.
A small and pretty fast utility that generates Makefile for C/C++ projects. It's written in bash.
hmake is an intelligent compilation management tool for Haskell programs. It automatically extracts dependencies between source modules, and issues the appropriate compiler commands to rebuild only those that have changed, given just the name of the program or module that you want to build.
a platform-independant perl script which parses the output of GNU make to produce useful information on the terminal, such as progress toward completion and current action
aim of this project is to allow a client to assign the compilation of a source file to a remote server throughout the mediation of a Master Server
a make(1) replacement that makes building simple things simple and building complicated things manageable
an automated alternative to creating makefiles for software development under Unix. Using a few basic assumptions, jmake can build libraries and executables for multiple concurrent platforms with minimal effor
kdesvn-build is a script to automate the process of downloading, building, and installing KDE from its Subversion source repository. It supports many advanced features such as partial checkout/build of a module, the unsermake build system, incremental make, module checkouts using Subversion snapshots from the kdesvn-build.kde.org site, and repeatable builds.
yet another make replacement, but one that allows you to create your makefile in C++. A header and footer are added to it, and it's then compiled using your C++ compiler.
Magic Makefile is an alternative to autoconf/automake, cmake, scons, etc. that uses only GNU make and bash and other shell tools. It makes it much simpler to do many C/C++ programming tasks without having to resort to an IDE.
a tool which controls the generation of executables and other non-source files of a program from the program's source files
make project is a command line program which makes project skeletons.
a set of portable public domain programs designed to support C/C++ projects. It provides tools for build operations outside of the normal compile/link pipeline. It is designed to be unobtrusively included directly in your own project
Makeflow is a workflow engine for executing large complex workflows on clusters, clouds, and grids. Makeflow is very similar to traditional Make, so if you can write a Makefile, then you can write a Makeflow. You can be up and running workflows in a matter of minutes.
generates C/C++ Makefiles out of short Perl-based templates. However, users are not required to know Perl to use Makemake.pl
consists of a collection of "Makefile" snippets each of which defines features for a single task or some related tasks. For instance one snippet defines features for generating programs from C sources, another snippet defines features to generate man pages, while yet another snippet defines features for installing files in various ways. In no way the tasks are limited to programming
a system of makefiles which, in conjuncture with the
patch to GNU Make, provide a concise, extensible, logically organized and easily modified system of makefiles
a drop-in replacement for GNU make which has a number of features that allow for more reliable builds and simpler build files. It supports almost all of the syntax that GNU make supports, and can be used with makefiles produced by utilities such as automake
MaKL is a simple and light framework for building multi-platform C/C++ projects, purely based on the Bourne Shell and GNU Make.
a fairly simple (template-based) makefile generator. It tries to guess all necessary steps to create a specified target file from a given set of source files
mk-configure is a lightweight replacement for GNU autotools written in and for bmake (a portable version of NetBSD make).
mkconfig is a build configuration utility. It creates an output file intended to be included as a header file, run as a shell script, used as a configuration file, or any other use.
parses a makefile and produces HTML documentation of available targets and macros. Only comments starting with ## are considered, so it is easy to control what documentation is generated
