No.  If I turn to a construction tool that comprises the functions I 
want in addition to what is available in the POSIX make(1) tool, then I 
will want to construct my project in such a way that establishes a 
linkage between my source code and the construction tool under the 
terms of the GPL.

The GPL prevents me from using OMake for anything other than what I 
already use Make.  That's no good for me.
