Buildtool is a set of integrated utilities which make programs more portable and easier to build on any kind of *nix-like system. It simplifies the build process of a program from user's point of view, by automatically configuring the source code with specific details of the host system; it also makes developer's work easier because all Makefile complexity is hidden and behavior is homogenized.
