Imake is very powerful, very portable and you'd spend years before you
got a system as effective IMHO. The problem isn't that Imake sucks, or
the X build system sucks its the giant spaghetti of configuration option

Replace the Imake macro configuration hell with something sane that
builds confgurations I can see being very productive
