Actually what I wrote is only for a binary distribution. There
are different apt-get procedures for building from source. I
should have said 'apt-get build-deps axiom' will install the
right version of gcl if it is not already there and
'apt-get source axiom' will get the source distribution.

For people who are building from source we just tell them what
the prerequisites are and probably also check in ./configure that
they have everything they need.

I think there are some source distribution tools for RedHat such
as source format rpm files, yum and up2date source options and
even a version of apt-get but I think they are not maintained
in so tightly controlled manner as Debian so they (generally)
are not as useful - at least in my experience. For building
large applications from source on Fedora I usually just resolve
dependencies one-at-a-time as they show up.
