Actually the files in the src/interp directory go into building
obj/bin/interpsys, not AXIOMsys. AXIOMsys is created as a final
copy operation and is not a precondition on any make stanzas 
(although I guess it should be. I'll make a note about it).

Hard to say, really. So much depends on so much.

In your console log it is not clear what failed. Part of the startup
process is to initialize the various )set commands from setvart.boot
If one of these is wrong the process could blow up.

At best I can suggest that you do a diff -r --brief between the
original axiom--main--1--patch-45 sources and your sources so I 
can see what actually changed. That way I can try to reproduce it

re: typos.

I'll apply the changes you sent.
