A minor point for clarification. As pointed out earlier, the `xiom'
script which was installed sets the environment variable AXIOM for
you, before launching the system proper. However, during a make, you
must set the AXIOM variable yourself as instructed by running
`configure' at the top of your source tree. 

I mention this because the AXIOM variable has appeared in two
different contexts throughout this discussion:

   1) During a make, the AXIOM variable is used to guide the build
      process. It points to the place where axiom is being built
      inside the source tree. Again, at this stage, the AXIOM
      variable should be set by hand as instructed by `configure'.

   2) When you type `make INSTALL=/usr/axiom COMMAND=/usr/bin/xiom
      install' the resulting `xiom' script will set the AXIOM variable
      appropriate for axioms new home.

I would like to second Bills comment and thank you for your patience
and help.
