Make sure the cache variable is defined before recording it for downstream

Marco Clemencic requested to merge clemenci-master-patch-5696 into master

With CMake 3.28 I'm getting an error in downstream projects (see

CMake Error at /workspace/build/Geant4/InstallArea/x86_64_v2-el9-gcc12-opt/lib/Geant4- (geant4_set_and_check_package_variable):
  geant4_set_and_check_package_variable Macro invoked with incorrect
  arguments for macro named: geant4_set_and_check_package_variable

This is due to the line:

geant4_set_and_check_package_variable(EXPAT_LIBRARY ""  "")

which should probably read

geant4_set_and_check_package_variable(EXPAT_LIBRARY "" "" "")

as geant4_set_and_check_package_variable expects 4 arguments (although it would probably be an error too).

This change make sure that the configuration generates only valid lines in Geant4PackageCache.cmake.
