I looked at the problem.  I believe the problem creped in when the
conversion from CVS to SVN was done -- though I need more
investigation.  I'm currently at a place where I cannot work (I can 
read mails for about 15min a day).  I'll be at working place next week.

I agree.

| In the SourceForge Axiom CVS archive I have set the binary mode
| for all the *.tgz files in the zips directory using the command:
| cvs admin -kb
| as described here:
| GRAMMING_Working_with_Binary_Files.shtml
| I have also requested a 'refresh' of the SourceForge Axiom SVN
| from CVS, so that should correct the binary files problem and
| permit Axiom to be build from the SVN archive.

| really that slow?)

yes, it is that fast, when you mind about the history of the commits
and such....
