Yes you are right, the script that creates gcl.bat during the installation
seems to be broken? The only difference I saw between an installation in
c:\lang\gcl261 and another directory is that the c:\lang\gcl261\bin
directory contains 2 more files gcl.bat and gcl.pif. If for some reason
specific to Axiom you need to use gcl from another directory than
lang/gcl261, it seems that you can just move the whole directory
c:\lang\gcl261 to your new directory, and add the following file gcl.bat
in directory "NewDirectory\bin" (with the example directory

------------------- gcl.bat
@echo off
rem Define the main directory of gcl
set W$=c:\programs\gcl-2.6.1
rem set C_INCLUDE_PATH=%W$%\lib\gcl-2.6.1\h
path %W$%\mingw\bin;%PATH%
start %W$%\lib\gcl-2.6.1\unixport\saved_gcl.exe -dir %W$%/lib/gcl-
2.6.1/unixport/ -libdir %W$%/lib/gcl-2.6.1/ -eval "(setq si::*allow-
gzipped-file* t)" %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9
------------------- End of gcl.bat

This works for me on Windows 98SE, I suppose it would run too under any
version of Windows NT (4.0, 2000 or XP)

It think one can comment the line with C_INCLUDE_PATH, at least as long as
gcl.bat just runs the executable for gcl. I don't think the env variable
for gcc compiler is of any use to run the executable? Or is it for some
reason I am unaware of ?.  Anyway, on Win98, gcl can be run without this
var being defined.

Best wishes,
