We tried scons and didn't get it working within something like 6 months.
Dependencies, running tools built during the built (without being
installed), RPATH handling, system introspection, portability to OSX,
MSVC and more wasn't implemented or good enough.
We didn't get any support from the scons developers.
We had to modify so much we had bascially a fork of scons.
You have to learn python to use Scons.
You can use all of python in build files, not necessarily a good thing.
That's how the most simple cmake file looks:
And CMake isn't tied to Makefiles. You can also build KDE using XCode on
OS X, Visual Studio on Windows and KDevelop on Linux.
