Automake + friends make the situation even worse (as I already stated).

No, what we need is an build system where we describe the structure of
our software on the highest level possible. We just write down which 
modules our software consists of an from which sources the modules 
will be generated. The rest (even all compiler handling, platform 
specific stuff, etc) will be done by the build system and hidden from 
the application developer.

I'd suggest forking off this topic from this list, since it is interesting
for many other projects too. 

I'm already coping with this topic for some while, so I'd also offer
to create an list for it at my site.
