This sounds like something that might be beyond a GSoC project to
develop a standalone code base. It would probably work better next year
as an enhancement, if this year's project to build an initial working
application worked out well.
What I would do instead is a "smart" detection using things like
flex/bison/pybison. You could first detect the buildsystem type
(autotools/cmake/distutils/etc) based on file existence. Then you would
parse the build files using the syntax described for your lexical
analyzer/parser to build a basic understanding of what build-time
options are available and offer them as USE flags. You could also do
similar things to detect dependencies by understanding their syntax in
the source code.
