Sad Bug in Geant4 9.3p01 Configure script 

Forum: Installation and Configuration
Date: 10 May, 2010
From: Tony Johnson <Tony Johnson>

There appears to be a new bug in the Geant4 Configure script with geant4 9.3p01 (and possibly 9.3). In our experiment-specific make files we make use of lines like:

CCFLAGS += `$(G4INSTALL)/Configure -incflags` `$(CLHEP_BASE_DIR)/bin/clhep-config --include`


LDFLAGS += `$(G4INSTALL)/Configure -ldflags` `$(G4INSTALL)/Configure -ldlibs` `$(CLHEP_BASE_DIR)/bin/clhep-config --ldflags` `$(CLHEP_BASE_DIR)/bin/clhep-config --libs`

to compile and link with Geant4. This used to work OK with 9.2, but now the output from

${G4INSTALL}/Configure -incflags


LD_LIBRARY_PATH is set to include CLHEP and Geant4 libraries. NOTE : you should verify that the correct path for the CLHEP library


is included in the dynamic library search path ahead of any other installations of CLHEP on your system that may be referenced by this path.


which makes it not so easy to extract the relevant last line. There is a -s option but this suppresses all output (including the essential -I... line).

It would be nice if this could be fixed.
