      Description

      It turns out that "scons install" is more aggressive about hunting for SConscript files than "scons". I think this is a serious misfeature, as it makes it hard to debug build issues (they may show up when lsstsw builds the package but not when a user tries to do the same build directly).

      I admit that "scons install" has to do some things more than "scons", but I don't believe that should include building targets using SConscript files.

      See DM-1403 for an example of how this bit me.
