GNU make

https://www.gnu.org/software/make/
Make examines a set of related files, determines which of them are out of date, and runs just the commands necessary to bring them back up to date. Make is typically used to compile and link programs, but it can be useful in many other situations as well. Make reads a file called a 'makefile' to learn how the files in your program are put together. It may also contain rules to install the product, clear up the workspace, generate distribution packages, or other tasks. When you write a program, you should also create a makefile for it so that it is possible to use Make to build and install it.

Last version includes support for GNU Guile as an embedded extension language.
