How have you achieved this excellent result?

I spent a long time trying to write a single build script that would infer
dependencies from the filesystem layout and then just works as more files
are added / moved. That's sort of functional, but it struggles with code
generators and still contains a list of what libraries various executables
should be linked against.

I'd very much like a good solution to this.
