Method for building bullet changed, breakage?
Starting with SVN R2321, bullet is now built as part of VDrift, so there's no longer any need to build bullet first. I added a bunch of the bullet files that are needed to the src/SConscript file, and removed linking to the bullet library. This is apparently the way the bullet author always intended bullet to be used, and solves a lot of problems: first off, the bullet build scripts are a little wonky and sometimes have bugs, and second, if the user did install a different version of bullet on their system, it doesn't matter anymore, since we don't link against a bullet library, we just include their files.

Anyway, I'm wondering if my monkeying around with the VDrift scons files broke compilation for anyone (specifically for other platforms). Anyone having trouble?

Seems to work pretty well for me. I didn't clean my build first, but it worked nonetheless. Cleaning the build and recompiling all the object files worked fine too. This seems a much better approach to Bullet for VDrift, as long as the compiler flags and such for Bullet don't change often.

$ scons arch=a64
scons: done building targets.

Looks good here!
