None installation does not start after configure

Hi, 

I try to install geant4 on SLC5 (at CERN). 

I downloaded the tar-ball from geant4.cern.ch (4.9.2.p02), unpacked it to:
/usr/local/sbin/geant4.9.2.p02

I set:
export G4INSTALL=/usr/local/sbin/geant4.9.2.p02
export G4WORKDIR=/usr/local/sbin/geant4

I created the (empty) /usr/local/sbin/geant4 directory.

I checked, that I have all necessary permissions in these directories (actually i tried to do the installation as root as well).

I run the configure script:
$G4INSTALL/Configure -build

I answer the questions, set the right directories etc. 

At the end of the configuration I get the following output:







End of configuration phase.
 
 
Creating configuration setup file...

WARNING: the generated configuration file
can be edited if necessary!
You can introduce any change to the configuration file
/usr/local/sbin/geant4.9.2.p02/.config/bin/Linux-g++/config.sh before the final installation. 
To do so, use a shell escape now (e.g. !vi /usr/local/sbin/geant4.9.2.p02/.config/bin/Linux-g++/config.sh).

Press [Enter] to start installation or use a shell escape to edit config.sh: 
 
Can't find config.sh.
Can't find config.sh.
Can't find config.sh.
Can't find config.sh.
 
WARNING: Geant4 is NOT installed yet!
You (or the administrator if you have not enough privileges)
should start with $G4INSTALL/Configure -install
(where $G4INSTALL is Geant4 install directory).







Of course, the file /usr/local/sbin/geant4.9.2.p02/.config/bin/Linux-g++/config.sh is existent and has the selected values in it.
Apparently the geant4 configuration file fails to find the file env.sh which should be in the same directory, but it is not there. 


any help would be very much appreciated,
thanks,
Peter

ps: i attached the config.sh-script I created with the Configure script.
