When I attempt to build nonpareil via "scons-local/", I get the

root at highlands:/usr/local/src/nonpareil-0.78#
scons-local/ /usr/local/src/nonpareil-0.78/scons-local/scons-local-0.96.90/SCons/Sig/ DeprecationWarning: the md5 module is deprecated; use hashlib instead
  md5 = imp.load_module('md5', file, name, desc)
scons: Reading SConscript files ...

  import popen2
"/usr/local/src/nonpareil-0.78/scons-local/scons-local-0.96.90/SCons/Tool/", line 36

    import as


SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Any notions of what occurs here?  Python version incompatibility maybe?
Python is at version 2.6.4 here; on my older machines where nonpareil
builds successfully, it's at 2.5.2.
