where is CLASSPATH supposed to point?

what is the CLASSPATH used for during the build? Where should it be? Right now, if I don't have a defined CLASSPATH the compilation doesn't start (I get a note about the CLASSPATH not being defined, and the process just stops). If I define classpath and point it to an empty directory, the compilation does start.

Where should it point to, correctly?

If your build option includes java bindings, indicated by, BINDINGS=java it will need CLASSPATH. The CLASSPATH should point to the path to junit jar file that you would have downloaded. junit is used for test framework that is a part of the source code.

By default, if you do not specify any options for scons it will build all the bindings which means it will build java bindings and will need the CLASSPATH
