As far as I know, the ``new compiler'' has been abandoned 
around 1990. I think, sources from 1991 did not contain that compiler.
It has never been used in ``production'' even with Scratchpad II.
As a replacement (for the old compiler and the never used new
one) A# was developed (later known as Aldor) -- around 1991 and 1992. 
So this was before Axiom became a commercial product by NAG and
long before Axiom became open souce.
