Please note that most of us do not work full time on Geant4 development or support. We aim to provide prompt response, but this is not always possible when we are busy with other responsibilities.

To answer your point about "steered away from gmake", you can still use it, but our experience over a wide range of cases has been that the CMake system is superior in terms of usability, robustness and portability, hence our recommendation. We will however be providing a timeline for the end-of-life for the gmake system this year. This does not mean you will have to use CMake, as we aim to support a range of non-CMake build systems on Unix systems via the geant4-config program (see the Installation Guide). Further systems can be supported as requested, but this requires resource from the requester.

Ben.
