I think this problem was reported here: it is only possible to
checkout Axiom on a case-sensitive filesytem -- so on Windows and
traditional Mac filesystem checkout fails.  This is due to files
which have names differing only in case: contra
and poly.pht contra POLY.pht.  

In principle checkout should work if you use Unix filesystem on
yout Mac (but I have no idea what trick Mac OS X or svn can play
with Unix filesystem).

We should probably rename one of offending files, maybe have
'' insted of ''?

In the meantime I can provide a tarball with recent checkout
if you wish.
