OK, I guess the point was that the clean target of the Makefile does
not remove these files, at least at the time of my earlier message.

Again, I think these are generated by the build, and can/should be
removed by 'clean'.

As a suggestion, could you provide this in .tex format instead?  At
least for Debian packages, changes in binary files like .dvi files
cannot be represented in a diff, so everytime this file changes, if I
leave it in the package, I have to increment the "upstream" package
number and install the *whole* original source tree tarball as a
separate version in the Debian archives.  I.e., multiple axiom
tarballs installed in their entirety perhaps diffing only in this

BTW, do you have a suggestion for the "upstream" axiom version number
used in the Debian package?  Right now I'm using 0.0.0cvs.

My bad -- Debian policy is that all files installed with executable
permissions should be elf or scripts.  These files are neither, and so
I am as you note removing the x permission.  Perhaps you could also in
the CVS?

OK, these sound like executables too.

OK, so perhaps a chmod -x in CVS?

OK, but sounds like an executable.

OK, sounds like an executable.
