Good work!

Gee, what could have given you that idea??

No the boot directory is not redundant.

Yes you need to compile boot first before you can compile
anything from interp.

No the interp directory code does not contain all of the
functionality of boot (nor any of the functionality of boot
for that matter).

No what you have been doing so far is not a waste of time.
However, I think you should be using the make process as
defined in the current Axiom makefiles first before trying
to change things in a radical manner.
