The issue is easy to see, once you know the trick.  3 simple tests.

1st: get vizibility: uncomment line 2600, so the build environment is

# print(env.Dump())

2nd: Run scons with LDFLAGS set on the command line:

LDFLAG=foo scons build

Check the environment.

3rd: Run scons with LDFLAGS set internally, add line 958:


And run "scons build", then check the environment.

4th: Change the added line to this:


And run "scons build", then check the environment.

Compare the output, and build results, of all three tests.  Then you
see what Hal found.
