Two things spring to mind: Distutils (aka setup.py) and scons ...

Scons is basically 'make' in Python but can be used for non-python
projects (Blender uses it for instance).  I supports hierarchical builds
and a separate build configuration file.

Distutils is the standard python-specific build/packaging system.  It
can be used with py2exe and InnoSetup (or other installers) to create a
packaged windows system.
