If you run out of other things to do, you might add a scons pre-check that
does all the build/setup stuff without running any tests.  The idea is that
you can then run scons check several times and diff the log files (or check
the lengths) to look for quirks.

I did that years ago - it's the 'build-all' target. The intent was to provide a way to verify that all the tests build successfully without actually running them, but it should work for your case as well (as long as it hasn't suffered from bit rot).
