I'm doing a test build right now. There are a zillion more ${SPAD}/notangle
that I had to patch locally. Could you please do those as well?

Also, about 20 files had references to ../../../../mnt/linux/bin/axiom.sty.
I've locally hacked these, but I guess they'll need more general treatment.

I'm using the FreeBSD port of noweb for this job. It's looking pretty clean.
I have got your patch to noweb engineered into our noweb, and I'll get it

The current patch set is about half a meg; most of that is notangle stuff.
When I have it extracted, I'll give you a URL to fetch it from.
