In the specific case we are talking about, yes.  Confer the discussion
we had on September 30, 2007.

When I install GNU coreutils on my Solaris box, I don't confuse
GNU with Sun.  I install them in different directory.  And Sun or AT&T
don't get to say how the `ls' command must be named by GNU on either
Solaris boxes or Linux boxes.

OpenAxiom installs all its algebra and sub-components in different
directory.   OpenAxiom does not depend on an external setting of the
AXIOM variable -- this is the nth time I'm repeating it to you.

Install OpenAxiom in a directory different from Axiom.  You can do it,
because OpenAxiom -- unlike Axiom -- lets you specify the destination
install directory at configuration time.  
As a matter of fact, I have 6 copies of Axiom derivatives running on
the box I'm writing from.

Otherwise, the rest is a bug in Axiom -- you know how to fix it.
