The SMK utility automatically determines, which pieces of
a program need to be recompiled and issues commands to
recompile them.

The latest SMK release is version 0.4, released on
December, 12th 2004. It is available for download from
the SMK web site:

This release handles multiple -f options, reorganizes
package meta-info, adds a Pythonic setup script, Intel(R)
C++ Compiler support (on GNU/Linux), has portable path name
handling, platform independent naming of targets, Microsoft
Windows support, Microsoft VS.NET and Windows DLL support,
