      Description

      Dear ROOTers,

      when installing ROOT to a fixed location, ROOTSYS does not need to be set (this is e.g. how all distributions I know of package ROOT).

      However, if ROOTSYS is not set, I observe the following:

      $ root --notebook
      terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::logic_error'
        what():  basic_string::_S_construct null not valid
      [1]    3524 abort      root --notebook

      nbmain should not rely on ROOTSYS being set in the environment (also root-config works well for these builds and determines bindir / libdir / etcdir correctly).

      Cheers,
      Oliver
