Cygwin currently provides two versions of
scons package in its built-in package library: 2.3.4-1 and 2.4.0-1.
However, I am now trying to compile an external C++ library with Cygwin terminal on Windows platform. After following certain tutorial, I have run into the issue shown below.
$ scons scons: Reading SConscript files ... Using Python version: 2.7.18 Using gcc version 10.2.0 SCons 2.4.1 or greater required, but you have SCons 2.4.0
Now the problem is that Scons 2.4.0 is the newest version in Cygwin's built-in package library. So is there a way that I can download a newer version of
scons separately and add it to the path under cygwin manually?
Many thanks for any information about this issue.
