We use SCons (www.scons.org) as a build tool and are very pleased with it. Look
for the "Repository feature." This lets you build *everything* outside your
source code trees. We embed code (some 20 or 30 lines of Python) for
quick-and-dirty parsing of jam files in your SConscripts. Works like charm for
building libboost_python.so or boost_python.dll anywhere you want.
