Hi I have tried to build mesa using scons with drivers=llvmpipe  and
llvm=yes options in a box without llvm and the only thing I got was a
python backtrace.

I think it would be helpful to catch that exception an prompt a user
friendly "llvm can't be found".

I guess the whole build system have the same problem spread everywhere.

PS: I'm not providing a patch because I'm just starting to read the code.


A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
