Hmmm. Here is my apology for speaking without sufficient knowledge.
I just checked on the only commercial version of Axiom that I have
(the old Windows demo version) and I see that you are right. The
same domains are grouped into a single .spad file - without the
pamphlet structure.

So I presume that originally these 345 *.spad files where all
compiled one at a time as part of the Axiom build, right? Each
call to the compiler would then compile 2 or 3 domains.

But the reason this is done differently now in the open source
Axiom build must be because of the bootstrap. I mean now the
order in which things are compiled matters because we are
not building from an existing running Axiom system. So I guess
you were forced to break these files up into pamphlet chunks
in order to extract and compile them separately.

But as a result the source file map gets built based on the
individual domains rather than the original groups.

I think I see.

If you have any ideas you would like to share about how to
fix this, then perhaps I could help?
