Thanks Bill, but that still may not be early enough. Also I think
there may be issues with Unicode support even in the Python 2.7
version of SCons but I was able to work around them for now.

path = [unicode('C:\MinGW\x86_64-6.3.0-posix-seh-rt_v5-rev2\mingw64\bin',

environ = Environment(tools=[])
environ.PrependENVPath('PATH', path)

I receive the same MinGW linker message where it tried to use the 32
bit toolchain.
