FYI and you are not alone in thinking this, but this is not what
Premake is. As the name would suggests it runs before make (or others)
and is a cross platform project generator ie it generates Visual
Studio solutions, Xcode projects, makefiles, CodeBlocks, CodeLite etc
much like CMake does yet using a sane Language :)

With the latest development version you can add blocks of code which
will be placed as is into a Makefile etc and you have been able to run
your own scripts for build events for a long time, ie it does not
always control all aspects.
