Hello François,

You should not need to be root to compile Axiom, unless you have
messed-up at one point when compiling Axiom under root account.

If you want to update your Axiom local CVS copy, you'd better use

   cvs -z6 update -dC

 -z6: compression
 -d: create new directories
 -C: delete files no longer in the repository

I hope it will be easier with this command.

I fear that having real documentation is really an intent right now. Tim
has focused on documenting the building process and part of the
interpreter when an issued was raised, but nothing systematic has been
done yet.

I _think_ you'll find part of the interpreter in src/interp/i-*.pamphlet
files. Maybe the toplevel handling is in i-toplev.boot.pamphlet.

I hope it helps a little,
