Recently at work, I've been using SCons as an alternative to make, the autotools, IDE scripting, or hacky batch scripts for building software.
I like it a lot. Because I'm lazy, I'll just refer you to another blogger who has said everything I would say: SCons rocks like Spock in a box!.
The only downside I've heard about SCons is that it can be slow when get a few thousand source files. I've only been using it for small projects so far, but those small projects will probably turn into bigger projects, so I'm sure I'll eventually get some first-hand experience with the performance issues.
