 Not much that I can see. Yes, you could build a crosscompiled
 image of Axiom and you could set the system so it does not try
 to compile things but you couldn't use it for algebra development
 without a lot of handmanipulation (e.g. running the debugsys
 image in which everything is interpreted, handloading the
 interpreted form of the compiled algebra, etc).

 I'm at a loss about why the crosscompilation issue was raised.
Distributors have environments set up so that they can crosscompile
programs to targets. You can wonder why they do this, but that is the
way they do it.
Crosscompiling Axiom here, does not mean that the Axiom compilers or
interpreter is itself a crosscompiler (to get there, you would have
compiled Axiom as a Canadian cross which is pointless in this specific
case). The crosscompiled tools or programs just act natively when
run on the host. I suspect that is the part Bill is confused about.
