See patch committed to Axiom Savannah cvs below.

Of course the most reliable method to install Axiom on Debian
is just:

  apt-get install axiom

But if you really do want to build Axiom from the cvs sources,
there are a couple of other things you will need to do.

Francois, you have found a bug in the configure script of the
version of gcl (2.6.7) that is built by Axiom. The bug and a patch
from Vadim V. Zhytnikov to correct the problem is described here:

I have just committed this patch to the cvs as savannah, so to
get the updated Axiom source you should do this:

  cd /home/fmy/Fabrique/axiom
  cvs update

This corrects the problem above, but on Debian you will also
run into another problem concerning the GCLOPTS that Axiom
uses by default. On Debian you must use the 'locbfd' option.
To do this edit 'Makefile.pamphlet'

  vi Makefile.pamphlet

and look for 'makefile.linux' then change '<<GCLOPTS>>' to

Now you can try the build again:

  (set variables)
  make clean


I have just tried this procedure on my Debian sarge/testing
system and it appears to work. Pleae let me know if you have
any problems.

Bill Page.
