GNU Make

https://www.gnu.org/software/make/
Generates executables and other non-source programs

Make is a program that is used to control the production of executables or other files from their source files. The process is controlled from a Makefile, in which the developer specifies how each file is generated from its source. It has powerful dependency resolution and the ability to determine when files have to be regenerated after their sources change. GNU make offers many powerful extensions over the standard utility.

Documentation

Info manual and man page included. A copy of the manual is available at: https://www.gnu.org/software/make/manual/

N.B. GNU make can be compiled with GNU Guile integration. See the "Guile Function" section in the GNU Make manual for details.
