Of course, I shouldn't have hard-coded the paths and I fixed that

The problem with the AXCOM package happened, because when you called
'make', it tried to execute the following rule (the first rule of this

axiom-com.lisp: axiom-com.lisp.pamphlet
                @${TANGLE} axiom-com.lisp.pamphlet > axiom-com.lisp

This, of course, failed, because ${TANGLE} couldn't be found. But at
that time 'make' (the shell, in fact) had already created
axiom-com.lisp as an empty file. When you called 'make' again with the
paths fixed but without calling 'make clean' first, the package AXCOM
did indeed not exist, but the file axiom-com.lisp did, so it wasn't
rebuild. Hence the solution is to delete axiom-com.lisp (or call 'make
clean') and then call 'make all' again
