Build system idea

Could I suggest we use SCons?  Its build files are simply Python 
scripts that it loads in a special way... check out their docs.

Take note that id Software uses it for Doom 3 Linux :-)

I'd also suggest that instead of specifying the names of all 
files in the SConstruct file (yep, that's what they're called) we 
use 'find' (or the equivalent Python functionality) to 
automatically generate a list of files that need to be compiled.

p.s. I hope everybody isn't dead - I'm getting worried at how 
suddenly the messages stopped!
