Nope.  Here is what it removes:

    'rm -f %s/gpsd.hotplug' % env['udevdir'],
    'rm -f %s/rules.d/25-gpsd.rules' % env['udevdir'],

udevdir defaults to /lib/udev/

Maybe.  I sure would not trust it.  No way scons can know what you
did in your previous install.  People tend to get pieces of
gpsd splattered all over their disk.

And then there is the case of xgps, xgpsspeed, ubxtool, zerk, etc.
Maybe it got installed earlier before the PyGTK and pyserial checks,
but now scons might think they should not be installed, thus not
know to uninstall them.

Ah, I missed the subject change.  Not gonna look at it since you
think all was working now.
