Since there is only one Makefile, I could take a shot at creating a

That's wrong that there is just one Makefile. Well it's true that there
is just one file named like that, but the main Makefiles are the
conf/*.mk files generated from conf/*.rmk by genmk.rb.

Yes I see that now. Obviously I spoke before reviewing the internals of the build system. I'll review it in a bit more detail and see if I can contribute something useful.

There wasn't yet much talk about improving our build system.

Yes, that and documentation are generally the last things to be considered in a project.

But except of this nobody had much interest/time to improve or even
directly replace our build system by something better.

I have some interest, but I'm not sure of the time. I can at least look at it and possibly make some suggestions/patches.

Okuji already objected against automake because according to him it
doestn't satisfy the needs for our build system.

I'm not a great fan of automake either.
