Yes. Sorry about that. There are problems building G4beamline on any 64-bit system, Mac or Linux. This traces to the old Geant4 build system not implementing new values of G4SYSTEM to distinguish 32- from 64-bits; as G4beamline uses that build system, there's no good way to support 64-bit systems.

Geant4 9.5 changed their build system, and it now has no need of G4SYSTEM; it handles the 32-/64-bit problems simply and naturally. I am changing the G4beamline build system similarly, and fully supporting both 32- and 64-bit builds is a prime requirement.
