Have you considered writing a Makefile which builds the C code on your
platform and doesn't rely on external tools the platform lacks?
That's still a lot of work but might be easier than building scons and
all that entails. Ivan has already said that he does essentially the
same on Windows and doesn't rely on scons.

I would also prefer if serf used something other than scons but at
this point it is water under the bridge. I was in a similar situation
on OpenBSD where scons did not support building shared libraries correctly.
I ended up sending patches to scons upstream to fix my problems.
