From the SCons web site: "SCons is an Open Source software construction tool—that is, a next-generation build tool. Think of SCons as an improved, cross-platform substitute for the classic Make utility with integrated functionality similar to autoconf/automake and compiler caches such as ccache. In short, SCons is an easier, more reliable and faster way to build software."

See the Software Versions tab for hints on setting up your environment to use SCons on the WestGrid systems on which it has been installed.
