Bash and Make, I'm looking for compatible replacements for these. As i
currently understand it bash at the least is expected to compile the linux
kernel. Is there any suitable projects that you may have seen around the
net or considered a bash rewrite? I see you recommend mksh and dash but
neither have bashisms that some projects seem to expect.


For me, I think bach it very much bloated. I would definitely agree that
mksh or dash is a lot better. Well about rc, I wouldn't recommend that
since it's a total different syntax compared to POSIX shell, although
posix shell definitely have some weaknesses, it's still more portable.

And about make, I would recommend make, I didn't check the source code
for both make and mk but I did some benchmark back then, make is still
the fastest build system that I have tested and it have a clean but
weird syntax. But just beware of autotools and autoconf.

I love the site and the list of tools you have found to "suck less" looking
great!

Nice, hope you could help us out starting with some of the project
ideas. http://suckless.org/project_ideas
