Yeah? How would they handle Interscript sources?
What about Camlp4?

My system also contains *Felix* programs,
since it happens to be a compiler. How do these
make systems handle that?

What about my use of SWIG to generate wrappers?
That's another 'programming language' which needs
to know about what libraries are installed on your target
system.

By far the best way to handle this complexity is with
a SINGLE general purpose language.

I chose Python because it runs on more platforms
than make, autoconf, or just about any other weird tool.
[C itself would have been more universal .. but a too hard
to write]
