  Hi Ben


 About the "externals", what I do in my things is that I arrange to "capture" the used options / flags
 when the package is concretely build. I deposit the infos in some textual ".save" file. I arrange to have
 the ".save" files in the distrib and then the xxx-config uses that.

  The idea is that if the builder / installer had been able to "do the job" of finding the right options
 then no need to have the xxx-config guessing things again. This is not so easy to put in place,
 but for the moment things seem to work for me. (And I handle in this way Qt, gtk, Motif, OpenGL).

  In the case of G4, someone may think that "all is in the config/*gmk" and that the xxx-config should
 arrange to use this info. But one problem may be that the installer, according its platform, may
 not have things "as in the default in the config/*gmk", and by capturing what is concretely done,
 you can bypass this problem.

  Anyway, it is fine that this problem is addressed.
 (I need that to build my OpenScientist G4Lab package).

   Cheers. Guy.
