I removed this section from patch-SConstruct

env.Append( CXXFLAGS=os.environ['CXXFLAGS'] )
env.Append( LINKFLAGS=os.environ['LDFLAGS'] )

It was incorrect, because:
1) os.environ obtains a string, not a list of arguments
2) CXXFLAGS should be obtained correctly anyway from elsewhere in the code

Please, cvs up and try again.

Note, that this has been there since the beginning.

Like "Removed do-test, because it's useless"?

Somehow Clang did not complain. :)

NetBSD and Darwin, with Clang.

Consider it done. :)

Kind regards,
