Just had to plug my favorite cross platform build tool here. Scons could solve all your building worries...

er, I'm afraid scons doesn't help here. it doesn't configure and build cross toolchains for you, nor build native dependencies with alternative build systems of their own (*cough* boost), nor buy operating systems and funny hardware to run the tests on.

as I've said in the past, I do *like* scons. it just doesn't solve all the world's building problems. it's one piece in a big, ugly puzzle. I'd even be happy enough to use it if I'd gotten around to writing a distcheck rule (it doesn't have one by default). I'm only sticking with automake out of inertia, but inertia is a "real" reason.
