Some good news. With the patches supplied by Camm in:

and removing the out-of-date patches which have since been
incorporated into gcl, the darcs axiom--windows--1 source code
seems to be compiling using the new gcl-2.6.8pre. I now expect it
to complete successfully (I will confirm in a couple of hours).

This means that at least we will be able to work with the same
version of gcl in both Linux and Windows once Camm officially
releases 2.6.8. The Windows version of Axiom was last successfully
compiled only with a patched version of gcl-2.6.5.
