calls build/buildcheck.sh which checks autoconf and autoheader and copies libtool stuff sets up libtool services checks for python calls gen-make.py build.conf produces configure
// I suspect it somehow calls this tool to process build.conf: ~/trunk/build/generator/gen_make.py main(fname, gentype, verfname=None, skip_depends=0, other_options=None): computes the header dependencies (not sure what this means) write the (above obtained?) sqlite headers offer debug output if --debug is defined useage_exit & class Options: It also offers interactive useage service -- when is that used? This looks like it's manipulated from the outside somewhere? It calls it's own main?
build.conf -- defines a lot of things used by the python scripts
