A heterogeneous configuration management tool enables building of a software system in a heterogeneous network of computers. In building a desired software system, the tool enables at least one component of the system to be translated by a foreign computer of the network and other components of the system to be translated by other computers of the network. A reference to a version indicator is passed to the foreign computer to provide the foreign computer an indication of user-specified version of the component being translated by the foreign computer. The reference is expanded during processing on the foreign computer. Pathname transformation files are employed to provide transformation of a pathname in one computer of the network to a corresponding pathname in another computer of a network. Binaries resulting from component translations are stored in split pools. In turn, split releases of the built software system are enabled.
