A try block in dbcommands.cpp will need to be modified when SERVER-5752 is fixed. This comment should serve as a reminder.
this correctly handles arguments with spaces, quotes, etc
This function returns a string command with fully qualified paths to a valid (>= 2.5) Python interpreter and to the smoke.py file.
This patch is a reorganization of our build files, which brings them slightly closer in line with standard SCons organization. In particular, the SConstruct file sets up the various "build environment" objects, by examining the local system and command line parameters. Then, it delegates to some SConscript files, which describe build rules, like how to compile "mongod" from source. Typically, you would create several SConscript files for a project this large, after breaking the project into logical sub projects, such as "platform abstraction", "data manager", "query optimizer", etc. That will be future work. For now, we only separate out the special rules for executing smoke tests into SConscript.smoke. Pretty much all other build rules are in src/mongo/SConscript. "tools" are placed in site_scons/site_tools. This patch also includes better support for building and tracking dependencies among static libraries ("libdeps" and "MergeLibrary"), and some incumbent, minor restructuring. This patch introduces a "warning" message from SCons about framework.o having two rules that generate it. It is harmless, for now, and will be removed in future work. Future work also includes eliminating use of the SCons "Glob" utility, and restructuring the source code into sensible components.
