What's the nearest ruby equivalent to waf?

http://stefano.italians.nl/archives/66 is a pretty nice example of
using waf, a python build tool, instead of autoconf and make, to build
a c++ project. Is there a ruby build tool that can be used for
something similar? (This is not a case of NIH; looking at the waf
script in that example, I can imagine it being a lot nicer in ruby)

What about rake? I am using it in a c/ruby project. It basically just
adds the task stuff,
finding headers etc. can bw done with mkmf.

Here is the rakefile, maybe it can help you:
