 It seems that gcl on ia64 can only use dlopen. Axiom tries to force
 gcl to use bdf library (which is better solution when it works). So you
 should probably build gcl separately with default settings.
That is a bug. Ideally, Axiom (buildimprovements, that is) should
NOT decide itself on the configure options. However, GCL should be
able to detect that BFD is missing (or present) and decide accordingly.
Now, I rememebr Humberto asked recently what enablecustreloc was
about. It was put there a very long time ago. But since then GCL's
configure's gotten smarter and needs not be told about that. Those
are bugs that should be corrected.
