  I have now added DESTDIR support, which was also missing.  It
monkey-patches the regular env.Install and env.InstallAs, so as to need
changes in apps.

 This and future changes I make will be available in a mercurial tree
published at

  Next I'll try to make 'scons distcheck' verify that DESTDIR is
respected for all installed files.
