How does Scons compare to distutils? Should I ignore
it or move to it?

Yes.

Seriously, what are you doing?

distutils seems pretty ubiquitous when building Python extensions,
since it has special knowledge of the Python with which it is run, and
makes some common tasks easy. scons, OTOH, is a general
make-replacement. scons is most useful for people writing projects
mostly in compiled languages. I imagine scons has some support for
distutils.
