Support #21500: NOvA Request for new nutools release
geant4 v4_10_4_p02 with patch for NOvA
We'd like to apply this patch to Geant for our build:
This is approved by Alex H and the DetSim group.
It's against HEAD, but should apply cleanly to 10_4_p02 or anything else recent. Let me know if there are any difficulties.

Since Krzysztof has signed-off, can we proceed?
The plan we agreed to on the phone was as follows:
- Apply the patch and start the build. If it builds cleanly, use this geant release with the nutools requested in #21500.
- If the build does not proceed cleanly, then just fall back to the official G4 release for #21500.

- Status changed from Assigned to Feedback
Both e15 and e17 builds are available. See http://scisoft.fnal.gov/scisoft/bundles/geant4/v4_10_4_p02b/geant4-v4_10_4_p02b.html
Please verify that this build of geant4 is as expected.

OK, Matt Strait is going to try to check it this afternoon.
Note that our ability to check it is dependent on this build being binary-compatible with the NOvA software stack built using the previous G4 version. If that turns out not to be true, then you'll just need to proceed with making nutools based on it, since that will be our only means of checking it.
If it checks out this afternoon, can we get the nutools/nu distribution tomorrow?
