None OpenScientist installation problems

I am trying to install OpenScientist on a Ubuntu 7.10 machine with Geant4 and CLHEP already installed. I wanted the osc-vis package; to be on the safe side I decided to install from source.

I followed procedure described on the web site, in the "build from source" part.

1) Unzipped OpenScientist

2) Switched to OpenScientist/16.8/osc_vis/16.8/obuild directory

3) Ran . ./ (I use BASH)

4) Ran ./sh/build

I was able to get through most of the installation without much of a problem (Synaptic/apt-get in Ubuntu are great). The real problem came when the system tried to build the geant4 part. It tries to find CLHEP in /usr/local/CLHEP/ and certainly fails (well, at some point I put a link to my CLHEP, version there, it was satisfied but got stuck with some other problem on geant4).

As it is recommended on the site, I went to OpenScientist/16.8/foreign/v1r7p0 and edited CLHEP.obuild:

<variable name="CLHEP_home" platform="UNIX">PUT REAL PATH HERE</variable>

and also, just in case

<native_version>PUT MY VERSION HERE</native_version>

Still, I get the same: "WARNING : CLHEP not found under /usr/local/CLHEP/" message. This is even more surprising because I changed the message, so, even if the system somehow looks into /usr/local/CLHEP/, the message should look different. Then I also tried to find where else in the package there is a phrase "WARNING : CLHEP not found under ..." and could not. Now I am really stuck and puzzled.

Could somebody, please, tell me what is going on and how to fix this. Thank you, Slava
