The SCons wiki has moved to https://github.com/SCons/scons/wiki/SconstructShortest
Moved this from SconstructShortMsvcWin32
Just a quick comment: the above isn't really the shortest SConstruct possible. That would be something like this:
#create a.exe from a.c (assuming win32) Program('a.c')
which would build
a.c using all the defaults. Notice that as of SCons 0.95 or so, you can use the default environment so you don't even need to create one separately.
