There's autogen :-).  It is completely agnostic about the underlying
tool.  Work out a way to describe a project and then create some fairly
straight forward templates to emit's -- using wild cards
and directory searches to your hearts' content.  Then, just cook up
a template for another project builder and emit that code.  Presto!
You're ported to a new engine.
