i.e. cp src/share/algebra/*daase mnt/linux/algebra/ ?  Can I do this
at the start of the build?

Axiom does build on Debian alpha, at least.  --disable-statsysbfd
--enable-dlopen are needed.  You will also need to build a few of the
intermediary images with the calls to (compiler::link...  I posted a
while ago.  These work everywhere, but are required on dlopen systems,
as unexec will not dump dlopen'ed loaded modules.  I can repost the
details if needed.

I thought the Zaurus was an ARM processor?  If so, gcl is fully
supported there without dlopen.  Config should start at least with
--enable-machine=arm-linux if not autodetected.  Don't know what
X-scale is, but if its not arm and is x86, the answer should also be

If you want to avoid any of the gcl builds, you can grab a .deb off of
the temporary dist site and unpack on any linux box (with compatible
shared libs installed, do a ldd unixport/saved_gcl to confirm).

Take care,
