scons: fix building in non-standard locations
Review Request #3353 - Created Feb. 25, 2016 and submitted
Changeset 11345:f7caf45f2bd5 --------------------------- scons: fix building in non-standard locations It's apparently not widely known that our scons scripts allow you to put the build directory wherever you want; not only does it not have to be immediately under the root of your repo, it doesn't even have to be underneath the root at all. (For example, sometimes it's useful to build on a local disk if your repo is on a slow NFS mount.) I point this out because this functionality has been broken for close to two years but no one seems to have noticed yet. This patch fixes an assumption that crept in in changeset be0e1724eb39 (May 09 2014) that the build dir would be immediately under the top level of the repo, preventing builds anywhere else.

Well, this is a nice feature I wish I'd known about for the past... 5 years.

As the guilty party I approve of this fix... :-)
