This was discussed before. In short:

 - Tim prefers to have a big sources with all included dependencies in
   order to control the built system;

 - it is possible to build Axiom with an external GCL. In fact, Camm
   Maguire, lead GCL developer and debian packager of gcl, axiom, maxima
   and other software, is doing exactly that for the axiom debian
   package. I don't know however if the machinery has been included in
   current sources of Axiom.
