[Ardour-Users] scons install builds a totally different set of object files?

This is interesting. I typed scons to build Ardour 2.0-ongoing (from svn). It took about an hour on my EEE, then finished. Then I typed "scons install", and it has taken so far TWO HOURS to build even more stuff, and shows no signs of finishing anytime soon.

Why? I thought the install target was just supposed to install stuff, not rebuild it. I also thought the scons target would build the binaries, then scons install would just copy them to the proper location. I'm not clear why it built hours and hours of stuff on the install target.
