I don't know if you're using the msys compiler under Windows.
I found a bug in the compiler (which cost me a week of debugging)
so I gave up on Windows. I can dig up the details of the bug from
my backups if you really want to get low-level.

The easiest way would be to compile Axiom on a linux box and copy the
lisp files. There is a file called src/interp/debugsys.lisp.pamphlet
which contains the files that get loaded into an image. I don't know if
it is up to date but it is close. Note that this loads the raw lisp.
You could edit it to do a compile-file for each file first.

The src/interp/Makefile.pamphlet will be put into src/interp/Makefile
and that contains the steps necessary to make "interpsys" which gets
renamed to "AXIOMsys".

Feel free to ask questions.
