In the binary distribution, Geant4 is linked statically inside the G4beamline executable. The binary distribution does not include Geant4 in a way you can link with your own code, you need the source for that.

Many people find that G4beamline meets their needs, and they don't build either it or Geant4 themselves.

Yes. After building G4beamline from source, the libraries and their headers are installed into (InstallDirectory)/$G4SYSTEM/{bin,include,lib,share}, where G4SYSTEM=Linux-g++ for SLF/SLC. This includes CLHEP, Geant4, Root, GSL, FFTW, and Coin3d+SoXt (an open-source implementation of Open Inventor). Note that except for X-Windows, all libraries are static (*.a).
