The SCons FAQ mentions a scons-local package that is "intended to be
dropped in to and shipped with packages of other software that want to
build with SCons, but which don't want to have to require that their
users install SCons."

Builds fine for me on FC3, but `scons clean' does not work.

However, for use with GNU stow or rpmbuild, `scons install' must be
able to write the files to a different directory prefix from the one
used for compilation.  I.e., we need to build it to run in a different
location from where it is packaged.

With automake that would be done this way...

 $ ./configure
 $ make
 $ sudo make install --prefix=/usr/src/redhat/BUILD

Doing the equivalent with SCons seems to recompile everything with the
new prefix.  (I know the install step still requires a little work.)
