The problem is not the 'xxx.erlib' directory as such but rather the
failure to overwrite the existing 'xxx.NRLIB' directory. Something
has changed in recent versions of Axiom, gcl or linux which prevents
the lisp function delete-file from deleting the directory.

See details:

This is a known and annoying bug described here:

Tim believes the problem is in GCL but Camm says that aspect of GCL
has not changed. We need to find a solution.

As a work-round to the problem perhaps we should modify Axiom to

  (system "rm -r xxx.NRLIB")

before the rename?
