Unfortunately, from the Aldor people nobody seems to care. As far as I
remember, I contacted Manuel Bronstein and Stephen Watt, but I never got any

You should simply follow the instructions on http://arch.axiom-developer.org/
The link where to download arch from is right at the bottom.

On mathaction you can find out how to compile and use a *function* that uses
