There are 2 shell variables that can affect where axiom will look for things.

The first, called AXIOM, defines where the system lives. 
When set it during the build time it tells the build 2 pieces of information:


The (yourpath) tells the build where the sources live.
The (sys) tells the build what kind of target system to build.
(It is possible to do cross-compiles to other (sys) but we don't yet
exploit that).

The second variable is DAASE. It is set to the path ABOVE the algebra
directory. Thus if the databases (*.daase) live in (yourDBpath)/algebra
you would set:


Remember to leave the "algebra" directory off the end of the path.
This variable is only used during test builds. I play games with the
database locations. Users should not have to set this variable but
Camm may use it to point to other databases.
