Ok.Point taken. There are limits to the portablity of software.
But you have the source to bash. You can *try* and port it to any
plateform. There might be platforms that have a completly different
concept of files and paths etc.

The bash commands needed for configuring and testing can be
theorectically   extracted into an intermediate step. 

Gives you a good start in that direction

It should be possible to determine by analsis the set of bash commands
that need to be executed in the build a program. These commands could
be at least captured per platform for other users to use. 

The commands could the be translated into another language for
execution and or interpretation.

You dont need the full set of bash features just to run make and
config. The amount of commands that need to be executed for most gnu
software are limited.
