I think meson http://mesonbuild.com/ is a better tool than waf. It is
also implemented in Python but it uses a DSL for the build definition
making his syntax much more regular. Meson is gaining a lot of traction
and the development is very active (and upstream is not hostile to
packaging in distributions). However, I haven't used it for anything
very complex yet.
