I'm sorry to hear that you seem to have trouble getting SCons to work
properly. Here are a few first suggestions to narrow down the problem a bit:

1.) Does "scons -H" crash too?
2.) What output do you get from "scons" when you call it in an empty
folder (no SConstruct, no files, no anything)?
3.) SCons has a "--debug=pdb" option which re-runs it in the
debugger. You might get a backtrace there, and see in which
module/method the segfault happens.

Best regards,
