Comment (by mojca):

 There is also ticket #55677.

 In fact there is Gate 8.1 due for a release.

 But I need help with geant4's CMake build system, here are some failed
 attempts which I did not push yet:

 My old installation ends up with files under
 while the new installation puts them under
 and I'm not able to figure out how to fix that despite having a patch.
 This might or might not be related to the new CMake configuration option,
 but most likely not.

 The second problem is that I'm unable to force a particular version of
 Geant4. Gate will just pick the latest version of Geant. So once
 Geant4.10.5 is out, Gate will depend on 4.10.4 and build against the
 incompatible 4.10.5.

 The third problem is that double-clicking the app icon makes the icon
 bounce in the tray and opens the app which is consuming 100% of processor
 time until you kill it from Activity monitor. The command-line still works
 though, so there's still value in having the updated package despite this.

 (Gate as currently shipped is MacPorts is horribly broken and outdated for
 other reasons, for example it needs root5 which no longer compiles on
