Default How do you build your systems?

Hi,

I'm currently working on an x86 based embedded system, first i builded
the environment manually, currently i'm working on a script which reads
an inifile and builds the system according to it. I had a look at
catalyst and gnap. But gnap seems to be unmaintained for quite some time
now. And Catalyst is heavily focused on the whole livecd idea.

What do you use?

I have a build system I've written that I'm trying to get my employer to release open source.It is a collection of shell scripts that allow you to define a target profile and then build bootable images of that target. You can easily create new profiles by editing a few files.-Josh

I've got my own embedded/cross buildsystem (called "Briegel").
It has almost as long history as ebuild/emerge, it can fetch
and build whole distros completely automatically, but there
are some fundamental differences:

* it's *ALWAYS* crosscompiling (there is no native build)
* it can produce lots of different binpkg formats
* instead of "useflags" we've got feature switches
* package profiles are simple property lists, instead of shell
scripts (which also makes it *much* faster than emerge).
* tarballs and patches are fetched from distro-agnostic sources
(CSDB and OSS-QM)

Briegel is an commercial (non-OSS) product, but you may get an
free evolution copy. Feel free to contact me personally, if
you're interested.
