I recommend that you do an "out of source" build. This means
that Axiom is built in a different directory then where the
source distribution exists.

To do this, first use svn to check-out a clean copy of the
Axiom source to some directory, e.g. ~/axiom.improvements.
After that you will not change anything in that directory.
Instead, create a 2nd directory, e.g.

  $ mkdir ~/
  $ cd ~/
  $ ../axiom.improvements/configure --with-gcl

This will setup the ~/ directory with just the
subdirectories and makefiles needed for the build. Then

  $ make

builds all of the axiom intermediate files and the final target
in this 2nd directory.

If the build fails and you want to start entirely from scratch
then just delete the contents of this directory and issue the
configure command again:

  $ rm -rf *
  $ ../axiom.improvements/configure --with-gcl

Maybe that should go to the wiki. BuildAxiom perhaps? (That page seems to be out of date somehow.)
