2.3.x autotools support
I notice bits of the autotools build system are still present in 2.3.x.
Are they still supported in any sense?
Are there new source files or build tasks that are described in SCons
but not in the 2.2.x or 2.3.0 autotools?
If the autotools build is still functional, then it could be used for
2.3.x packaging, this would allow the SONAME and DESTDIR issues to be

Yeah, we left the autotools stuff around while SCons gets a chance to bed in, just in case we hit some of the sort of problems you've been noticing. At present I don't think there's been anything really added to the Linux builds that won't be in the autotools setup (most of what we've done with SCons has been for either fixing bugs, or adding support for other platforms), though I can't guarantee that'll continue to be the case. Certainly up to the 2.3.0 release an autotools build should work as expected.
I was about to respond to your SONAME and DESTDIR mails, but could you raise them as bugs and we'll see about getting them looked into. From a quick glance the SONAME stuff may be tricky with SCons, but I'm sure we can add something.
