I’m writing a C build environment in Smalltalk.

I can no longer tolerate makefiles, autoconf, and all the other bullshit that currently permeates building C projects like the Squeak virtual machine. We’ve had the ability to manipulate command-line utilities from Smalltalk for years. I’m writing a model of C build artifacts, dependencies, and utilities. I’m collecting transcripts of successful Squeak virtual machine builds from all platforms, from which I will reverse engineer. Please do send yours. Thanks!
