It's SCons. See http://scons.sourceforge.net/faq/current.html for the

"SCons, however, is an independent project, and no longer directly
associated with Software Carpentry. Hence, we dropped the middle 'c'
to differentiate it slightly, and to make it a tiny bit easier to
"Even though SCons is being developed independently, the goal is for
SCons to be a flexible enough tool that it would fit in with any
future tools that the Software Carpentry project may produce.
"Note that, at last report, the Software Carpentry project renamed
their tools with the prefix "qm"--the build tool being "qmbuild"--so
there shouldn't be any confusion between SCons and any indepent build
tool that Software Carpentry may eventually produce.
