I have really just hacked a shellscript together that does what I need
(I crosscompile). There's no real integration testing or checks of
anything beyond what make returns to the script. It's useful to me
because I enjoy the Win32 nightlies and want to share with anyone
interested, but for anything as serious checking if the buildprocess
actually functions correctly, I'd go with someone who builds for a living ;)
