 Replying to [comment:5 iraikov]:
 > I agree that eventually it would be nice to have a DSL for generating
 makefiles, but before we can design such a DSL, we need some design cases.
 Such design cases can only be obtained by a relatively straightforward
 ('boring') port of the current Makefiles to Scheme, and then iteratively
 improving and generalizing the resulting build system. I think this would
 be better than trying to come up with some grand design that doesn't work.

 I see your point. The problem is that getting a build to work is a time-
 consuming and mind-numbing piece of work that needs endless hours of
 testing and tweaking (I've done it too often, already). I'd like to avoid
 doing it twice. I do not insist on some grand design, but at least
 something less monolithic than a big `make` form.
