Installing older port versions
MacPorts is my preferred way of installing, managing, and upgrading much of the software I have on my Mac. I’m setting up a new work machine today and I need to install ruby 1.8.5 on my machine for Rails to be happy. Unfortunately, you can’t do something simple like specifying the version of the port you want to install unless it’s in a local repository. Fortunately, my friend Stephen Chu had this problem about a year ago and has a nice procedure on how to do it. I’m going to update it for MacPorts and ruby 1.8.5 here.
1) Find out the svn revision number of the Portfile that has 1.8.5 by looking at: http://trac.macosforge.org/projects/macports/log/trunk/dports/lang/ruby/Portfile In my case it is 21127.
2) Set up a local port repository. In the file /opt/local/etc/macports/sources.conf, add this line before the rsync line: file:///Users/Shared/dports and create that directory.
3) Install the port into your local repository. cd /Users/Shared/dports && svn co --revision 21127 http://svn.macports.org/repository/macports/trunk/dports/lang/ruby/ lang/ruby/
4) Run portindex so that ports now finds your new (old) version of ruby. portindex /Users/Shared/dports
5) Now you should be able to see ruby @1.8.5-p12 in addition to @1.8.6 by running: port list
6) Install Ruby sudo port install ruby @1.8.5-p12 You should be up and running now, so to check, run: ruby -v You will see something like this: ruby 1.8.5 (2006-12-25 patchlevel 12) [i686-darwin8.10.1]

Get CLHEP 22.214.171.124
after downloading to a good place "be sure to set the prefix path to where you want to find the CLHEP libraries"
tar -zxvf clhep-126.96.36.199.tgz cd 188.8.131.52/CLHEP ./configure --prefix=/users/tforest/src/GEANT4/CLHEP/184.108.40.206/ make
The above prefix will put the CLHEP libraries under the subdirectory /users/tforest/src/GEANT4/CLHEP/220.127.116.11/
the source code is under the subdirectory /users/tforest/src/GEANT4/CLHEP/18.104.22.168/CLHEP
when asked in the GEANT4 configure script below for the CLHEP_BASE_DIR subdirectory youwill enter /users/tforest/src/GEANT4/CLHEP/22.214.171.124/

Fink is a Unix software package program which will install unix programs on the Mac in the /sw root directory instead of /usr or /bin.
You need to download an Image file for a binary installation
On 12/6/12 I attempted do update Fink using the command
Fink should be installing everything under "/sw" and not bother "macports" which is using /local.
I then did the following
Run "/sw/lib/fink/postinstall.pl" in a terminal--this will redirect Fink to the correct distribution for your OS version.
Run "/sw/bin/fink scanpackages" in the terminal (Source->scanpackages for Fink Commander users).
Run "sudo /sw/bin/apt-get update" in the terminal (Binary->update).
(The above two commands get rid of binary-distribution related errors.)
Run "/sw/bin/fink selfupdate" in the terminal (Source->selfupdate).
Run "/sw/bin/fink update-all" in the terminal window (Source->update-all).
Fink will recompile and install GEANT 3 using the command
/sw/bin/fink install cernlib2005
