   I have to say that I have been very disappointed with existing build
system solutions.  Nothing really was an improvement over
automake/autoconf, nor was completely designed to solve some of the
problems that automake/autoconf solved.

   But MBuild is a remarkable piece of software, I am avidly reading
the documentation, and as I mentioned in my blog, one unique
characteristic about MBuild that sets it apart from other build tools
is the amount of new ideas on how to improve software maintenance which
I have never seen before.

   Am going back to read the documentation, which is a fascinating
document itself.
