Hello, we are currently trying to package Geant4 for the gentoo distribution (http://www.gentoo.org). Since gentoo allows/requires users to compile tailored versions of any software used, the role of the our package system is to provide instructions on how to build software with various features and optimizations enabled. We are having a quite hard time figuring out how to write these fully automated scripts with the ./Configure provided with the Geant4 release. Since I did miss the item 'Improve build experience' on the planned developments list, I was wondering if the Geant4 developers have any plans move to a different buildsystem (like e.g. autoconf available on many platforms) or at least release more information on how ./Configure is generated and can be regenerated by users -- i.e. the input files and software used. But of course everybody, not just distributors and gentoo users, would love Geant4 to use a more standard build system. Benjamin Bannier
