A lighweight alternative to GNU autotools, CMake and SCons based on NetBSD make

mk-configure is a lightweight replacement for GNU autotools, CMake and scons based on bmake (a portable version of NetBSD make) and UNIX tools (shell, awk etc.). It is a fork of NetBSD mk files. Thus, its concept and design are very similar to the "traditional" files available in all BSD flavours. Unlike, mk-configure is portable and runs on a huge number of platforms. It provides support for building shared libraries on all supported systems, supports many different compilers and linkers and a lot of other interesting things and additions. It is easily extensible. Upon its name, it also has "autoconfiguration" capabilities. Thus, it is a full-featured software build system for portable development.
