It may _look_ like it, but it is not at all the same thing.  Not even
close.  SCons builds a single global dependency graph from all the
SConstruct and SConscripts (as well as scanning for implicit
dependencies like header files), then executes that graph by using its
global knowledge to build the minimal necessary set of targets.

A SConscript per directory just helps with modularity; if you add a
source file or change the build options for a single lib, you only
have to change those build instructions in one place.
