[notmuch] [PATCH] Add SCons build files.

The SCons build files are not meant to require emacs.  If I've messed
something up and emacs is somehow required I would consider that a bug
and would try to fix it.

As far as availability, I'm sure that SCons is one yum or apt-get or
<insert other package management system command> away.   The only
people that would face more than a minor inconvenience are people that
prefer to download tarballs and compile and install things themselves.

Yes, I'm sure that make is widely available, but as notmuch gets used
on a wider variety of systems some sort of configuration system will
become necessary.  If I can prevent another project from going down
the autoconf/automake path I'll be happy.  I started creating CMake
build files but I don't know CMake well enough to come up with a
working build.
