Meson is an open source build system meant to be extremely fast.  it 
generates files for various backends including Ninja, Visual Studio, and 
Xcode. Meson does not generate Makefiles, relying solely on Ninja for 
Linux and Unix support.

This meson has been patched to teach it about Cygwin.

Ninja is a small build system with a focus on speed.   It is designed to 
have its input files generated by a higher-level build system, and it is 
designed to run builds as fast as possible.

CMake includes a Ninja generator.

These are in Fedora and Debian.

You may find "wget -r -np -nH -R'index*'" convenient for retrieving 
these files.
