Yes, it is, isn't it :-/ It all looks normal to me. The strangest part is that at the start of the build, it reports:

And apparently it successfully reads the file. Then, at the end it says:

Could you check the file permissions on the config.sh which was supposedly (re)created, |ls -l .config/bin/$G4SYSTEM/config.sh|?

Did the |./Configure| command by itself (no options) work, or fail? That command should have created the $G4INSTALL/env.sh and $G4INSTALL/env.csh files you need to source to set your local environment.

By the way, I am also running GEANT4 on my 10.5.8 MacBook (GCC 4.0.1). In my CVS-based installation area, I don't see the problems you describe, and in my "central" production area (/Applications/GEANT4/...) I have to |sudo| first, but again, don't see these problems.
