Greetings!  My apologies, but I've lost the head of this thread.  I'm
assuming that there is a segfault problem with debian alpha axiom
(unstable).  (GCL is built in btw).  I'm also assuming the problem
shows up on startup.  In this case, I cannot reproduce -- just
downloaded the binaries and installed on's unstable
dchroot.  Of course you can only run these on Debian testing or
unstable due to the libc dynamic dependencies.  Is that the
problem?  If any of this is close, please fill in a detailed way I can
reproduce the crash, or better yet, send a copy both to me and to the
Debian BTS.  'reportbug' is good for this.

For the package to build, btw, the compiled axiom must successfully
run the full input test suite, so the very existence of the alpha
package means that this was done.  You can find a log on if interested.

Take care,
