I am trying to build scons itself on Windows using the bootstrap.py python script as in the wiki with the command: python bootstrap.py
However, it seems to error at the end when it's trying to unpack the tar.gz file it created. Output below:

F:\Dev\SConsSrc\scons>python bootstrap.py
F:\Dev\Tools\Python\python.exe F:\Dev\SConsSrc\scons\bootstrap\src\script\scons.py
scons: Reading SConscript files ...

scons: *** [build\test-local-tar-gz\scons-local-3.0.0.alpha.20170614\SCons\__init__.py] Error 2
scons: building terminated because of errors.

Any ideas?
