from what I find on the Internet (sorry, Linux user here) you'd have to actively switch this feature "on" with the /FR or /Fr 
option. So I wonder where this option comes from in your case. I searched the whole SCons code base, but can't find this option 
being set anywhere.

Perhaps you can take the time to clarify your question a little bit? Maybe by showing the current command-line, and how it *should* 
look like?

Best regards,
