Right. Other features that would be nice to have (now that unsermake got us used to it) :
- incremental make install (only install the files that have changed)
- make $KDEDIR/lib/libkio.la (mostly related to the one above since it's about proper dependencies for target dir)
- modularity (being able to put everything that an app needs into its subdir, like we do with configure.in.in)
About solutions: I have a personal dislike for cmake syntax too, qmake is far too limited,
so I thought scons was the only solution, but this boost build thing looks interesting.
