I installed KleanSweep earlier. It was the first time I came across the SCons installation script in action. There has been some talk about SCons recently on Planet KDE recently, as KDE is switching from the standard Make/Autoconf/whatever mixture to the simpler one-package SCons.

I’m impressed! Not only was the build quicker, but it gave me only the relevant information that I was interested in. Usually, a ./configure && make takes forever, and dumps screen after screen of mumbo-jumbo to the monitor, but here is the total output of the installation:

the only thing I have a problem with is that the last line, with the ‘***’, is incomprehensible to me – it looks like a warning, but I don’t know what it means.
