I'm trying to build them with approximately the same reason: to test the installation (it already turned out that I forgot some dependencies that would be nice to have, and it certainly helps to verify that samples don't crash).

But also someone who is learning Geant4 can start by reading the source code and running the examples that have already been compiled. Most of them still allow running additional commands.

Anyway, I totally agree that samples should never ever be installed to "bin".

I wanted to provide an option (not default, but something that the user would need to activate deliberately) to install examples, compile them and put the binaries to some nonstandard location.

But if that's officially "forbidden", I'll try to refrain.

Thank you,
