Ok, I looked at the page, and to build it seems pretty simple, since it uses configure script., If you want to you can install MacPorts and install gcl and try to build axiom on the mac and see if it builds. I will give it a try later today, as I have class that I need to attend this morning.

Axiom, so I have not tried to compile it.

Thank you, thank you!

The main part of Axiom (the AXIOMsys computational "engine") is
built as a very large Lisp application on top of GCL plus a few
external subroutines written in C linked into the image.

The two other main parts of Axiom: Hyperdoc and Graphics, run
as separate processes, are written entirely in C and communicate
with AXIOMsys via sockets.

Couple of things to remember about gcl port, I have not updated
to the latest release (2.6.7) and I have not compiled it on
Intel machines yet, I will have to spend some time to verify
that it works.

It should be possible to build Axiom using the older version
of GCL.

Anything you can do to help us with this would be greatly
appreciated! If you haven't already, you might want to visit
the Axiom developer website at

to find out more about Axiom. If you have any questions and/or
suggestions, please let me know.

Thanks again, and "Welcome aboard!" :-)

Bill Page.
