OK, so without any cooperation from NAG, we should probably
drop the old tm_axiom, except if Andrey Grozin finds a way to
keep it working.

First of all, you should really distribute the entire axiom plugin if
you want to distribute the tm_axiom file. In the current distribution,
this means all what you have in $TEXMACS_PATH/plugins/axiom,
where $TEXMACS_PATH=/usr/local/texmacs for you. In general,
plugins are either installed in $TEXMACS_PATH/plugins (when the user
has root privileges) or in $HOME/.TeXmacs/plugins (for ordinary users).
So you should first try the first and then the second.
