Off-topic, but I'm quite skeptical of this claim, compared to
automake.  Makefile.am files tend to be pretty darn close to the
minimal amount of information required to build (in typical cases: a
list of source files), and very easy to extend.

Automake's implementation is not very pretty, but the interface
presented to the user is extremely good.
