The scons port version 3.1.2 uses MacPorts python 2.7 -- at least that is the intention. It is not intended to use the system's python.

You may verify which python it will run by using this command:

head -n1 $(which scons)

A future version of the scons port will use MacPorts python 3.x. You may Cc yourself on this ticket if you wish to be notified when that happens:
