Thanks for the answer. Sorry if it wasn't clear, but I was trying to build
the Windows installer on Windows, and this appears to be more helpful for
linux. I'm able to build on linux, but it only produces a 32bit windows

Some of the mentioned optional packages (such as epydoc) are not easily
available for the 64 bit python on Windows, but I don't really need the
documentation to be built. So I was hoping to manage without those
optionals. Right now I'm not sure if the error is caused by a missing
package that is supposed to be optional, or if it's supported to build on
Windows at all anymore. I have not attempted it since the scons 1.2.0 days.

Someone on the list posted a 64bit installer for scons-2.3.0 a while ago,
so I have hopes that it is possible.
