I think you should start by having a look at our FAQ ( http://scons.org/wiki/FrequentlyAskedQuestions ), and there mainly the #1 of 
"most frequently-asked frequently asked questions" right at the top of the page.
For your MinGW compiler to be found, it has to be on the PATH...and you have to make this path known to your build environment too.

Hope this helps...

Best regards,
