oh, this is an artifact of an OLD debate. people want to use their
"standard" version of notangle even though i keep telling them that
axiom applies patches. you ran into the problem (and solved it yet
again in a different way). axiom code needs axiom's notangle. but
i seem to have lost that war.

since i've also been porting axiom to various systems i've taken to
making EVERY command be a makefile variable as a matter of style.
i tried to port to FreeBSD and got bitten by the fact that certain
commands are not the same between systems. windows is a prime example.

it's a false generality in this case because i don't export these
Makefile-enabled pamphlets off my system (unless i send you a non-axiom
standalone program where i always use them)
