Good to know

Environment space and environment variable limitations must be kept in mind. At Microsoft says...

But at they also say...

In order to find native libs required by python and its extension the location of these libs can be put into the PATH environment variable. If this is what SCons does, does it detect overflowing the process' environment space or the maximum size of the PATH environment variable? If it does not, at some point it will break, and worse, because everyone checks out to a different path, so that the resulting locations will vary in length, it will break down more or less at random.
