Abstract Build systems,are an integral part of every software developer’s tool kit. Next to the well-known Make build system, numerous alternative solutions emerged during the last decade. Even though,the new,systems,introduced,superior concepts like content signa- tures and promise to provide better build accuracy, Make is still the de facto standard. This paper examines,GNU Make and SCons as representatives of two conceptually distinct approaches,to conduct,software builds. General build-system concepts and their respective realizations are discussed. The performance,and scalability are empirically evaluated by confronting the two competitors,with comparable,real and synthetic build tasks. V Contents
