[Halld-offline] Advanced support versions, bug fixes, and a new version set: 5.0.1

Recall that we dropped back to using version set 4.46.0 
as the default a week ago. There were two problems with version set 
5.0.0 <https://halldweb.jlab.org/halld_versions/version_5.0.0.xml>:

 1. Bug in the build procedure for geant4 and hdgeant4 in build_scripts
 2. Library loading in the batch script for running DSelectors in

The first came with the upgrade of Geant4 to 10.04.p02 and the second 
came with the upgrade of ROOT to 6.24.04.

Both have been fixed and there is a new version set with the fixes, 
5.0.1 <https://halldweb.jlab.org/halld_versions/version_5.0.1.xml>, now 
available at JLab. All code in all packages is the same as 5.0.0 except 
that hd_utilities has been upgraded to fix problem (2). Problem (1) was 
fixed by rebuilding the extant versions geant4 and hdgeant4 with a new 
version of build scripts, 2.24 
<https://github.com/JeffersonLab/build_scripts/releases/tag/2.24>. This 
version of build scripts was installed at JLab yesterday.

I am going to go ahead and make 5.0.1 the default version set at JLab at 
midnight. This in the name of progress.
