SCons with Modules

SCons is a software construction tool (build tool, or make tool) implemented in Python, that uses Python scripts as "configuration files" for software builds.


cd /usr/local/src/SCONS
wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/scons/scons-2.3.4.tar.gz
tar xvf scons-2.3.4.tar.gz
cd scons-2.3.4
python setup.py install --prefix=/usr/local/scons/2.3.4

Change to the appropriate modules directory, check for .desc and .version and .base, create a symblink to .base


cd /usr/local/Modules/modulefiles/scons
ln -s .base 2.3.4

The .base file looks like the following:


#%Module1.0#####################################################################
