I think this is very usual.  Once a build system is ok, no-one want to take
the risk to change it, and often no-one can change it anymore.

This is why black magic should be avoided.  And this is why good
documentation techniques are required.

If you have ever maintained a generic build script written by someone else
you probably understand what I mean.

I think this is the major challenge in the build managment today.  And that
will be the challenge for such a project.
