where is the configure.sh? or make file?

I just downloaded the 2.8 source, but don’t see any configure.sh. How do I get started to build this thing? I have built many packages from source before, but feel like I am missing the obvious on this one!

Ardour uses scons. So there is no configure script.

Perfect. thanks. Now if I could figure out how to easily move it from my build computer to my audio computer!
