Since more and more people run into the problem that they compile FairRoot on one platform and then accidentally run the macros on another platform i put a new safety feature to FairRoot
which should avoid this type of problems.

When runing cmake, information about the OS is put to the config script. During execution of the config script it is automatically checked if the run system is the same as the compile system. In cases were the systems are different the execution of the script is stoped and you will see an error message.

If you find some problems with the new behaviour of the configure script please let me know.

yes, I found some problems on a Suse enterprise system at KVI. In

export Linux_Flavour_="Welcome to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP2 (x86_64) - Kernel r ( l)."
export System_="x86_64"
. /home/panda/pandaroot/build/

... looks like he messed up the "Linux_Flavour_" afterwhich the exits. I am also not so happy with the very aggressive exit in the script. For example, on the system at KVI, I couldn't login anymore, since I normally run the via .bash_profile script during logon. Well, you can imagine what happens if it doesnt work and exits..... Is a default warning not enough?
