testing for existence of compilers/executables

    I am working with my build system using scons. I would like
    to test the existence of 'doxygen' or any other compiler/executable
    in the path (like gcc/icc/...)

    What is the most efficient way to find this out using python? using
    scons?
    Is there a way to list all C/C++/fortran compilers available on a
    machine
    using python so that I can give my user an option to select one?

    Thanks a lot for your help,
    --j
