Our build script for devs is the traditional

  ./bootstrap && ./configure <blah> && make

so the best place for improved build scripting is in configure.ac and 
src/Makefile.am. There's plenty of room for improvement, I look forward to you 
contributions. Shout if you need any pointers, the info files on autoconf and 
automake are the best starting point I know of.
