Yes, basically a little elaboration where by default I only see "scons:
done reading SConscript files."  (Sorry for being vague on the details -
I don't understand the exact mechanism by which these files are being
looked up. That's the point why I'm asking for it. :-) )

Yeah, I'm not very clear, sorry for that ! I just noticed during my
debugging that something *in* a SConscript file was messing up the state
so a subsequent call to VariantDir() would cause an error (as reported).
I still don't know what exactly that was; I just managed to rewrite my
code to work.
I was hoping that some information about the internal state as these
SConscript files are being processed might reveal the error in my code
more easily.
