Hi Volodya--

[For SCons-devel folks: this is CC:ed from a discussion on the jamboost
mailing list.]

An SCons Alias can't be used as a source, although it can be used as a
dependency. In other words, you can say that a target must be rebuilt
if (any target in) a given Alias changed, but you can't actually expand
the Alias in $SOURCES on a command line. Now that you mention it,
though, that might be a useful feature for some people...
