I hope to make the future entry unnecessary.  Academic deadlines took
precedence over Axiom plans, so...

I'm testing Waldek and Humberto's patch to allow build on MAC OS.
Then, I'll look into some of the Makefile bugs (hopefully, there
should be very few).

I very much appreciate the number of testings, interest and feddback
going into the build-improvements.  That pressure helps keep me up :-)
