Yes, the whole thing is very confusing; trying to understand it when I
try to be compatible with it in numscons drove me crazy (the changes
with default section handling in python 2.6 did no help). IMHO, we
should get rid of all this at some point, and use something much simpler
(one file, no sections, just straight LIBPATH + LIBS + CPPATH options),
because the current code has gone much beyond the madness point. But it
will break some configurations for sure.
