I've heard CMake is quite nice. It has been chosen by KDE as the default
build tool. It generates Makefiles on Unix and MSVC project files under
Windows, which makes it an integrated replacement rather than a complete
ad-hoc solution like ant & friends.
I don't know if it's practical for non C/C++ projects though.
Oh and I've just found out this one, which promises to be superior to
anything else (of course ;-)):
