It is specific to some versions of linux/unix.

The Axiom build process specifies certain options to the GCL
./configure (the ones you changed) during the build of GCL
without checking for specific hardware and operating system
versions. Perhaps it is not being sufficiently careful. The
GCL ./configure does check for many things but I am not sure
if the default ./configure options for GCL would have correctly
built GCL on your system in a manner compatible with Axiom.

Axiom graphics is included in the version that you downloaded
from CVS. To use Axiom graphics with this version you have to
start Axiom with the command:


Hyperdoc and graphics are available in the newest (still
experimental) version of Axiom is available in another archive.

The current plan is that this new version of Axiom will be
"pubished" on the Savannah CVS on February 1.
