[Axiom-developer] SPAD, strip and dev/null

I did a complete walk of the files I uploaded. There are
hardcoded paths in src/scripts/boxup, src/scripts/mytangle,
and src/scripts/myweave. These functions are only used by
me and won't be shipped. I'll remove them from the final
distribution but I'm actively using them for various 
purposes during the construction. As far as I know there
are no other uses for boxup, mytangle and myweave.

There are two uses of "/home/axiomgnu/new" in the root
Makefile.pamphlet which need to be changed. I used to 
compute these dynamically in the distant past but I have
to remember the magic. All you should have to do is set
a shell variable SPAD to the correct path and everything
should work. This will also be fixed before it gets into
the final distribution on savannah.

Make sure you're searching for "/home/axiomgnu" in a clean
distribution. GCL and noweb "capture" the path in their
configure scripts but that should all go away when you do
a make clean.

About the strip & /dev/null....
I'm going to redo that change as it uses /tmp/null instead
and this violates the rule that Axiom never writes outside
its own source tree. I need to use ${TMP}/null instead.
I'll also make the EXE change you suggested.
