Hrm, this needs some further investigations on the compiler flags. 

<snip patch>

With regards to the patch; all the changes you've made to the SConstruct
are no longer necessary. The flags are now all available in the
config.opts file which is generated by SCons on the first run.
Of course, it would be great if the build would run out of the box on
every platform, but this will be a great (if not impossible) challenge
due to the huge arsenal on different platforms, settings, compilers,
libraries, library locations, ...
I don't own a MacOS, so I'm not going to commit any changes to that
section since I'm not able to test the result. I'll talk to a MacOS
owner to test your proposed updates and let him commit the changes to

Again, thanks for the much appreciated feedback!

With regards,
