needed on some machines, where MingW linker complains about too long
command-line. On my machine (and others) it is not necessary due to a
workaround I made. The workaround just doesn't seem to work for everybody.
You can try building with "scons BF_SPLIT_SRC=0" on command-line. If you get
either a complaint about too long command-line or scons just seems to abort
with no message at all, you unfortunately need BF_SPLIT_SRC=1. As I
suggested, this may be the problem for you. How to get around it ...
currently the best thing is to download and install msvc 9 (express). You
don't need the DirectX SDK anymore, so maybe the download is not too hefty.
At least you should be able to compile without problems then.

To really solve this would be a proper reorganisation of src/ in such a way
that it isn't one big compile anymore, but smaller libs.
