scons: updated to 3.0.1

RELEASE 3.0.1:
- Jar can take multiple targets, and will make a duplicate jar from the sources \ 
for each target
- Added some warnings in case the Jar builder makes an implicit target
- Added Jar method and changed jar build to be more specific. Jar method will take in
  directories or classes as source. Added more tests to JAR to ensure the jar was
  packaged with the correct compiled class files.
- Added a No result test case to handle bug which seems unrelated to java in the
  swig-dependencies.py test, more info here: \ 
- Added a travis script to test on ubuntu trusty now that the project is on github
  so that Continuus Integration tests can be run automatically. It tests most \ 
case and considers
  no result a pass as well. Improving this script can install more dependincies \ 
allowing for more
  tests to be run.
- Updated the Jar Builder tool in Tool/__init__.py so that is doesn't force \ 
class files as
  sources, allowing directories to be passed, which was causing test/Java/JAR.py \ 
to fail.
- Fix issue where code in utility routine to_String_for_subst() had code whose \ 
result was never
  properly returned.
  (Found by: James Rinkevich \ 
https://pairlist4.pair.net/pipermail/sc … 06358.html )
- Fixed Variables.GenerateHelpText() to now use the sort parameter. Due to \ 
incorrect 2to3 fixer changes
  8 years ago it was being used as a boolean parameter.  Now you can specify \ 
sort to be a callable, or boolean
  value. (True = normal sort). Manpage also updated.
- Fixed Tool loading logic from exploding sys.path with many \ 
site_scons/site_tools prepended on py3.
- Added additional output with time to process each SConscript file when using \ 
- Fixed a regression in scons-3.0.0 where "from __future__ import \ 
print_function" was imposed
  on the scope where SConstruct is executed, breaking existing builds using PY 2.7.
- Fix broken subst logic where a string with "$$(abc)" was being \ 
treated as "$(abc) and the
  logic for removing the signature escapes was then failing because there was no \ 
closing "$)".
  This was introduced by a pull request to allow recursive variable evaluations \ 
to yield a string
  such as "$( $( some stuff $) $)".
- Fix incorrect warning for repeated identical builder calls that use overrides

Log message:
scons: restrict to python-2.x

While scons itself works fine with python-3.x, packages using it provide
SConstruct files, many of which only work with python-2.x since scons
for a long time did that too.

RELEASE 3.0.0 - Mon, 18 Sep 2017 08:32:04 -0700

NOTE: This is a major release.  You should expect that some targets
may rebuild when upgrading.  Significant changes in some python
action signatures. Also switching between PY 2.7 and PY 3.5, 3.6
will cause rebuilds.

      - Enhancements:
        - Added support for selective imports: "import A : B, C;" -> A
        - Added support for renamed imports. "import B = A;" -> A
        - Supports valid combinations: "import A, B, CCC = C, DDD = D : EEE \ 
= FFF;" -> A, B, C, D
      - Notes:
        - May find new (previously missed) Dlang dependencies.
        - May cause rebuild after upgrade due to dependency changes.
    - Updated Fortran-related tests to pass under GCC 5/6.

    - Added prioritized list of xsltproc tools to docbook. The order will now be as
      follows: xsltproc, saxon, saxon-xslt, xalan  (with first being highest \ 
priority, first
      tool found is used)
    - Fixed MSVSProject example code \ 
    - Defined MS SDK 10.0 and Changed VS 2015 to use SDK 10.0
    - Changes to Action Function and Action Class signiture creation.  NOTE: \

be used
      with Universal Windows Platform (UWP) Apps and published to the store

  From Daniel Holth:
    - Add basic support for PyPy (by deleting __slots__ from Node with a
      metaclass on PyPy); wrap most-used open() calls in 'with' statements to
      avoid too many open files.
    - Add __main__.py for `python -m SCons` in case it is on PYTHONPATH.
    - Always use highest available pickle protocol for efficiency.
    - Remove unused command line fallback for the zip tool.

      It can be downloaded separately at

  From Paweł Tomulik:
    - Fixed the issue with LDMODULEVERSIONFLAGS reported by Tim Jenness
      (https://pairlist4.pair.net/pipermail/sc … 04893.html).
      An error was causing "-Wl,Bsymbolic" being added to linker's \ 
      even when there was no specified value in LDMODULEVERSION and thus no
      need for the flags to be specified.
    - Added LoadableModule to the list of global functions (DefaultEnvironment
