I don't know anything of these tools or whether these are good or not,
here is configuration management link page:

and these are excerpts from it:


Executing commands according to rules instead of in the order in which
they appear is the great idea which gave us famous make. Bras is a
similar rule-based tool that uses Tcl like sysntax and has other
extensions that are more easily used and specified. 


Cook is a tool for constructing files. It is given a set of files to
create, and recipes of how to create them. In any non-trivial program
there will be prerequisites to performing the actions necessary to
creating any file, such as include files. Cook provides a mechanism to
define these.
