no-pkg-config is a bash script which implements the functionality of the standard pkg-config utility. It is intended for users of minimal systems who want to use pkg-config but do not want to install all the dependencies of the standard implementation. Most of the important features of the original implementation are supported. The commandline syntax and .pc file format are the same as the original. To use it, just place the script somewhere in your PATH and give it execute permissions.
POSIX amake is a software build tool that adds automatic dependency analysis and target caching to GNU Make. It monitors and records commands executed, programs executed, shared libraries opened, files accessed, and environment-variable values. It maintains a multiuser/multihost cache of previously built targets: an SQL database stores target metadata (e.g., command and dependency checksums), while a regular filesystem stores target files and their siblings. The target-cache feature is optional, being enabled by a makefile variable. It has been used to build and rebuild the Linux kernel.
depfinder finds the dependencies of Slackware packages. The dependency list can be output to stdout, to a .dep text file without version information, or to a slack-required file with version information. depfinder is very fast; its speed is mainly due to the C++ code that is used in depfinder to find in which package each individual library is included. It also has support for running multiple jobs, which makes it a lot faster when used with multiple CPUs/cores. depfinder supports detecting dependencies of binary files compiled with languages such as C or C++ and it can also detect Python dependencies.
