      Description

      Compilers (g++, clang++) often produce color outputs (e.g., the word error is in red, and important paths are boldfaced) when run on the command-line, but do not when run under scons. I've just discovered how to enable color output under scons, which I propose to implement. It merely involves propagating the TERM envvar through scons.

      I know that scons deliberately doesn't propagate envvars, but we propagate some (e.g., TEMP, EUPS_DIR); I propose to add TERM to this list. I don't believe it should affect the compilation of anything, but only the format of the outputs.
