Modern High Performance Computing utilizes a variety of different hardware and software platforms. These differences make it difficult to develop reusable components, which lead to a significant decrease of productivity. Our goal is to investigate the design of portable build systems that are simple, yet sufficiently robust with respect to symbol resolution, so that they are able to adapt and build software across many different platforms. To simplify the task of building software in different environments, we propose a novel way to structure the build process, supported by tools which will help with the construction and deployment of reusable components. Commercial applications and other benefits: A successful completion of this project would result in increased productivity for software developers who design portable software components. In particular, we anticipate significant benefits in the area of High Performance Computing, where the multitude of different hardware and software platforms make the problem of reusing software particularly acute
