What FUD? There's an alternative which is:
* easier to learn,
* more portable,
* more backwards-compatible (with its own previous versions),
* faster,
* generating nicer makefiles (progress percentages, color output),
* designed in a better way (information is kept in central places instead of
being copied into hundreds of projects),
* used by more and more software, including big projects like KDE 4.

It's called CMake.
