Have you tried DSSS? It's surprisingly feature-rich, and its syntax is a 
lot simpler than MSBuild's.

IMO, any build more complex than setting a few options should be handled 
by a scripting language, though. Knocking together a Perl script to call 
your builder is often a lot easier than mucking around with huge 
configuration files (anyone who's used Ant can attest).
