Depends on what you want the build process to do. For Python packages
themselves, distutils/setuptools should be sufficient (and it's
extensible if you find it insufficient).
It's the defacto standard - nearly every Python package comes with
a setup.py. Use setup.py build, setup.py install, setup.py

The unittest module is in the standard library.
