axiom needs xdr.  Latest glibc moves the functions, and my configure fix
was too stringent.  How about this:
Thanks.  That works for me on windows XP with latest mingw/msys.

What XDR package do you use? I have "successfully" built gcl using portablexdr-4.9.1 from http://people.redhat.com/~rjones/portablexdr/.
success == gcl configures (with a trivial patch below) and builds.

I still have problems under windows 7 on both a 32-bit and 64-bit system. The simplest of configure tests fail, so it probably isn't a gcl issue.
