It appears scons isn't completely tested or implemented, at
least under linux. You need to add some flags to the
platform_linkflags to allow python to work:
platform_linkflags = ['-Wl,-export-dynamic']
If you're on another plaform, its probably something similar
There's possibly a better way to do this, I know very little
about scons and just ran into this the other day when I finally
decided to try to get the scons build system working. After
which none of the python scripts I use worked. Adding the
export-dynamic resovled this for me.
