smake is a highly portable 'make' program that makes commands up to date based on rules in Makefiles and on the timestamps of the related files. It implements a complete superset of the features of the classical POSIX/Unix make program. It warns about typical misuse of dynamic macros that prevent portability of makefiles. Its automake features allow you to run scripts to automatically create rules for unknown platforms.
Embedthis Pak is a simple package manager for embedded applications. It makes it easy to retrieve, integrate, and manage components for embedded applications. An online Pak catalog provides tested, integrated componens that work together. It is not intended as a generic package manager to install complete applications. It implements the CommonJS Package specification and uses Git as back-end storage for packages. Pak calls packages "paks". This is not a misspelling.
CloverETL is Java-based tool/framework for data integration and creation of data transformations. It is component based and follows the concept of transformation graphs which consist of individual nodes/components performing simple (or complex) operations on data. Any transformation can be defined as a set of interconnected nodes through which data flows. CloverETL can be used as a standalone application or be embedded into a larger project.
BitRock InstallBuilder allows you to create easy-to-use multiplatform installers for Linux (x86/PPC/s390/x86_64/Itanium), Windows, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris (x86/Sparc), IRIX, AIX, and HP-UX applications. The generated application installers have a native look-and-feel and no external dependencies, and can be run in GUI, text, and unattended modes. In addition to self-contained installers, the installation tool is also able to generate standalone RPM packages.

Launch4j is a cross-platform tool for wrapping Java applications distributed as jars in Windows native executables. The executable can be configured to search for a certain JRE version or use a bundled one, and it's possible to set runtime options, like the initial/max heap size. The wrapper also provides better user experience through an application icon, a native pre-JRE splash screen, and a Java download page in case the appropriate JRE cannot be found. The increase in size of the application is small.
Smooth Build is a build tool which provides a functional language which lets you describe a build process in a simple and readable way. A build script for a simple Java program can be as simple as "app.jar: files("src") | javac | jar;" All built artifacts are cached and indexed (hashed) using the sha1 of the expression (function name and its arguments) which returned a given artifact. This way, Smooth never builds the same artifact twice.
