I can do a CMake build if that's desirable. While I prefer it to SCons,
particularly when config/build times are an issue and you want to have
several active build trees, it is a significantly heavier dependency.
With SCons, you can dump scons-local (a pure Python script) into the
source tree and then users only need Python. There are lots of other
lightweight build tools.
