I've hand-built a version of Axiom for Linux. 
It is available for download at:
Please download the file and try to run it.
Instructions for installation are on the web page.

I'd like to build a windows version but will need some help from
someone with a windows machine.

Note that this version cannot, at the moment, be built automatically
from the CVS code. I'm in the process of updating the CVS at the 
moment but even the latest version will not fully automate the build.
The latest CVS version automates portions of the regression testing
for builds. A working subset of the test files is distributed with
the handbuilt version (see axiom/mnt/input/*)

Note also that this version includes only the interpreter and compiler.
There are many other portions of Axiom which still need to be built (e.g. 
the graphics subsystem).

The hand-built version has some known bugs. In particular:

recursive patterns sometimes fail.
LinearOrdinaryDifferentialOperators sometimes fails.
compiling domains with certain hasCategory dependencies fails.
name defaulting isn't working (specifiy full names to the read command)

If you find what you feel is a bug please send a .input file showing
the failing example to one of:

If this version can be run successfully by several people I'll
look deeply into moving the whole pile onto savannah.
