"make" for AppleScript?

I am working on a group of a dozen scripts. In each case the majority of the code is the same.

Currently I have one script that contains all of the common code and 12 scripts that contain the code particular to each project. I now manually combine them into one script anytime something changes.

I would like to have something like “make” that I could use to rebuild all of the scripts when there is a change to the common code. One idea that has occurred to me is to save the scripts as text and use “make” to do this. But that somehow seems a bit forced.

What are some better solutions?

Thanks for the help.

I will certainly dig into those topics to see what they can do for me.
