'ccbuild' is like a dynamic Makefile: it finds all programs in the current directory (containing "int main") and compiles them. To do this, it reads the C++ sources and looks at all local and global includes. All C++ files around local includes are considered objects for the main program. The global includes lead to extra compiler arguments using a configuration file. ccbuild splits these arguments for compilation and linking, keeping the linking arguments back for later use. It should allow development without any scripting and only simple reusable configuration. 'ccbuild' can also create simple Makefiles and graph dependencies using DOT (graphviz) graphs.
