I have a similar problem. For years, I have kept the xsection data files outside the geant4.x.y directory. There are several benefits. With the geant4.9.5 version, I used CMake and set CMAKE_INSTALL_DATAROOTDIR to the location. The installation was successful (although rather more complicated than in the past). But now, as a user and copying some of the example cases to a local (user) directory, I can not find a way to compile them. The various setup scripts work relative to the main Geant4 installation.

The data files need to be distinguished from anything else that would be put into the 'share' directory in the new procedures. I set key environment variables in the system login files. Such variables need to be read or set in the setup scripts for users.

I am using the latest openSuSE 12.1 system. CMake seems to work well with it and finds all relevant files, including those where I needed patches to the .gmk files in the past. I may have to revert to the older installation method for a while.
