Note, my former shell script which is now an extensively documented ocaml 
script is *not* a build system, it's a *package builder*: a declarative script 
you write for your package that has the effect of invoking a selection of 
targets in the build system of a distributed package according to an explicit 
build environment (e.g. depopt specs) passed on the command line. It's not 
supposed to be invoked by humans but by machines through package systems (e.g. 

The idea is to make a clear distinction between building and installing and 
leaving installation to a third party tool (e.g. opam) rather than implement an 
install procedure in your build system. Another goal is to avoid having machine 
generated build systems (i.e. configure-like steps) and/or meta-tools that 
isolate you from your build system (e.g. oasis).
