Clearly my mistake. My grep seems to have missed that.

>From reading the function it appears that there are a few possible cases:
(1) If $AXIOM is wrong
  If you follow $AXIOM/../../share/doc/hypertex/pages do you find
  If the CVS is wrong. I checked my copy of the CVS and it includes the
  file. Perchance the upload failed (it has in the past). I'm in the 
  process of building a cleaned-up version of the system to upload to CVS
  on Savannah. This will take a while to complete and the import takes about
  5 hours (I'm on a modem) so even that will take a long time.
  If your copy of the CVS is broken. Do you have a copy of the file? If not
  I've appended one here. Store it in 
  Potentially you need to add the -d option to CVS to get the 
  share/doc... subdirectory.
  If you have an uppercase name in the path. Axiom tends to string-downcase
  pathnames because of the DOS port years ago. This is on the list of
  things to change. Until then you can't use an uppercase character in 
  If you have a symbolic link in the path. Some pathname functions (maybe
  truename) will resolve a different path if there is a symbolic link
  in the given path. I can't construct a case at the moment but I've
  seen it happen.

You could modify the defun code and print the value of the |fn| variable
after the assignment. That will give us a clue about what getenv returned
and concat built. I can't reproduce the problem here.
