I have build Axiom (CVS from 17.09.2004) on AMD64 (Mandrake) and
on i386 (Debian Woody). Some remarks:

- on AMD64 64-bit X libraries are in '/usr/X11R6/lib64' ('/usr/X11R6/lib'
  contains 32-bit versions). Such approach seem to be standard for
  having both 64-bit and 32-bit binaries on Linux. So I had to change
  'Makefile.pamphlet' accordingly

- to complile with Debian gcc-2.95.4 I had to apply the following 
  patch to gcl (otherwise gcc-2.95.4 choked on semicolon before

- many files (especially in 'zips' subdirectory) have executable
  permissions for no good reason. This is a problem when viewing
  them using Midnight Commander as mc tries to run them

- I suggest to '\usepackage[hypertex]{hyperref}' (or just plain
  hyperref if generating pdf-s) in Latex files. It makes the
  Axiom book much nicer for navigation in xdvi. For on-screen
  viewing it wold be nice to reduce margins.

- CVS seem to contain many 'junk' files. I understand that it
  will take some work to automatically generate databases and
  other files may contain some usefull info. But for example 
  'gcl-2.6.3.tgz' just is pure bloat (since 2.6.5 is used for
