What specific problems are you trying to solve that is
not solved today by the support in scripts/Makefile.host?
I notice you want to build tools for the target as well.
This should be relatively easy to add support for that using
the current kbuild syntax.
I we are going for something more standard then cmake or meson
are more modern choices than the dreadful autotools stuff.
And with modern I also imply better / simpler.

Any specific program you have in mind?
