It appears that you believe that your average user should be able to do:

   svn co open-axiom/trunk oaxiom
   cd oaxiom
   make install

So, in order to see what the DEFAULT behavior actually is, I did that.
Unfortunately it appears that OpenAxiom will not build on
I have to report the error message:

bash: ./configure: /bin/sh: bad interpreter: Permission denied

when I attempted the build on running:

   Red Hat Linux release 9 (Shrike)

which is a quad processor machine Intel box.

Linux #12 
SMP Mon Oct 2 22:00:49 CDT 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I do not know what the problem is because 

address@hidden oaxiom]$ sh

works fine. The first line of configure says:
#! /bin/sh

Since Open-Axiom won't build I'm left with reading the sources.
Further investigation reveals (from Makefile.pamphlet):

        @echo Installing OpenAxiom in $(prefix)
        @$(mkinstalldirs) $(DESTDIR)$(open_axiom_installdir)
        cp -pr $(builddir)/$(target)/* $(DESTDIR)$(open_axiom_installdir)
        rm -f $(bindir)/axiom
        @$(mkinstalldirs) $(bindir)
        $(INSTALL_PROGRAM) src/scripts/axiom $(bindir)
        @echo OpenAxiom installation finished.

and the src/scripts/ file contains

showuse() {
echo "axiom"
echo "     [-ht   |-noht]       whether to use HyperDoc"

Thus it appears to me that the DEFAULT behavior will install 
Open-Axiom using the command /usr/local/axiom

Once I can build a new virtual machine I'll try to build OpenAxiom
and verify that this is the case.
