Thanks for your replies!
scons -c works, but this is a very dangerous to rely on in my case. For example, the binary name will differ when we build debug and release versions of our bundles. So it is very easy to build a debug version, test it, and then build a release version and send it to someone without realizing that the debug binary is still present. Also, passing bundles between different build steps is impractical when they are handled as a bunch of files.
