The idea to have an interactive installation for Axiom (like Cygwin setup
or like "synaptic": on Debian) is a good one
but implementation would be a lot of work! For one thing, such an installer
would have to know all of the dependencies within the Axiom library so
that one could "pick-and-choose" the mathematical packages (also categories
and domains) that one wishes to use and have the installer include all other
packages on which it depends automatically included.

It would be great to hear from anyone who has any specific ideas about how
to do this.

In the meantime, instead of downloading the binary distribution, perhaps
you might find it more convenient and interesting to build Axiom from
source. The detailed instructions are here: BuildAxiom.
