AePro is a compilation manager for programs written in progres4gl. It compares modification times and will only (re)compile the programs whose source code has changed. It is intended to be used in combination with Aegis, a transaction-based software configuration management system that provides a framework within which a team of developers may work on many changes to a program independently.
Apache Toolbox provides a means to easily compile Apache (IPv4/6) SSL, PHP(v3/v4), MySQL, Jakarta, a large number of modules (61 3rd party modules and 36 default Apache modules, static or as DSOs), and GD libraries with PNG+JPEG+Freetype2+zlib support. It is fully customizable and menu-driven. Everything is compiled from source, and wget is used to download any missing modules. It can also check for RPMs that might cause problems and create an RPM with your selections.
AutoGen is a tool designed for generating program files that contain repetitive text with varied substitutions. Its goal is to simplify the maintenance of programs that contain large amounts of repetitious text. This is especially valuable if there are several blocks of such text that must be kept synchronized. Output is specified with a Scheme-enhanced output template. Input, if required by your template, may come from AutoGen definitions, CGI data, or XML files.
Autotools Bootstrapper scans a package's Makefile.am and configure.in (or .ac) and creates a customized bourne shell script which can create the configure script with a single command. The resulting bootstrap script can also be used to clean all autogenerated files from a project's directory tree, which is useful for importing into a CVS server. This tool is especially useful for developers who are not familiar with the use of Autoconf, automake, and libtool.
Buildkernel is an intelligent shell script that automates the task of building a Linux kernel. For beginning users, it handles the process from beginning to end, prompting the user when they have to do something. Advanced users can use it to build multiple kernels with little effort. Buildkernel will download kernel and pcmcia source, remove unnecessary code, create symlinks, automatically patch the kernel, build the kernel, modules, and pcmcia modules (nicely), and install them to hard disk or floppy, running LILO as necessary.
CVSGnome is a build environment for the GNOME project which allows a systems administrator to install GNOME from either released source Tarballs or from bleeding edge CVS depending on what is wanted. This script also works as a general building wrapper around other sources. When started, it shows an interactive self-explanatory menu.
The GNU Autoconf Archive is a collection of more than 450 macros for GNU Autoconf. They can be re-used without imposing any restrictions on the licensing of the generated configure script. In particular, it is possible to use them in configure scripts that are meant for non-free software.
Gconfigure allows for easier building of programs from sources, letting you merely right-click on a tarball and select "build". Dialogs allow you to set the necessary options, and the program will be installed for you. Gconfigure will also remember what options you entered the last time and reuse them when building the next program.
