thanks for the follow-up, it makes a lot clearer what you're trying to
accomplish. If you'd simply need this for a single project or once in a
while, another option would be a custom Decider (see 6.1.4 in the
UserGuide) which always returns True.
I'm not really convinced by the "-B" approach yet, can you give an
example of a situation where you would call "scons -B" instead of a
simple "scons" with the standard MD5 Decider?
