Ok. I'll put a new debian iso and do a build.

Yes, I am moving the system away from noweb and some of these
files are side-effects of the move that I forgot to add to the
clean section. They do not matter and will be overwritten.

Axiom does not use the installed GCL. It has its own copy in a
tar-gzip file in the zips directory.

All my free time is spent working on Axiom.
I don't consider it a waste of my time.
I do hate it when the one of the failures gets off my desk
and begins to affect other people. Poor form, that.

News to me. I'll look once I build the debian virtual machine.
