CMake would be great.  LLVM/Clang already use it.  It can generate ninja build files.  It shows what it is doing with ccmake.  It should make cross compiling more straight forward.

And libobjc2 already uses it.  hehe

I tried working with those config files in base last year and found them very frustrating, refering to code and options that seemed many years old and unsupported.

I'd be more inclined to move to CMake, which has the advantage of not being a complete usability disaster and being able to generate XCode projects.
