I managed it for the Debian package, certainly. Since scons is being
bundled it makes sense not to require it externally too (though embedded
copies of programs in source trees are bad, generally; my real
preference would be for no included scons, and then using an external
copy...). Ditto for the included fonts, which I throw away in the Debian
packages since they're already in the archive.
