I can understand Tim point of view: do not depend on external sources
and manage complexity by providing the "Axiom-blessed" versions of
noweb, gcl, etc.
One possible solution to this issue would be:
1. remove noweb, gcl, etc. sources from axiom source tree ;
2. put them in a repository somewhere on axiom-developer.org ;
3. write a shell script, much like GARNOME for Gnome ou Konstruct for
KDE that fetches source dependencies from axiom-developper.org,
build them and then build Axiom itself.
This script could be a separate one or be part of ./configure (e.g. with
option --fetch-and-build-dependencies).
What do you think of it?
Best wishes,
d.
