The errors that you see are because the version of
Axiom that you are using is incomplete. Some of the
required algebra modules have not been compiled by
Axiom. I do not know the reason, however these missing
modules sound like an early version of Axiom that
first became available last Septerber 2003. At that
time the Axiom make file was still incomplete and
did not build all of the required algebra. This was
corrected in versions of Axiom that became available
at the Savannah development site some time around
November 2003. But then there was a hacker attack
on Savannah and that site become unavailable until
nearly January (?). So we had to make do with temporary
locations for the files. Perhaps you or the Debian
developer (Camm, can you verify this?) somehow
managed to get an older set of files.

These missing modules seriously impact Axiom's
ability to more than a few simple calculations.
I think you should resolve this problem before
distributing Axiom on the CD rom.
