Yes.  See the message I just sent.

Yes.  Now, I think I understand what is going go.  See the other
message.  AXIOMsys is built twice.  The first time it is tested, the
second time it is not -- and that is no good.

First, we should not build twice.  Second, if we must build twice,
then we must test the second version -- the one that is installed.

Finally, I think we must rewrite the patch to src/etc/ that introduces
this new behaviour.

Th reason why I thought the branch is broken is that I have a script
that "watches" the output of the build log and it got confused by
the new behaviour.  Then I spend the whole day on it :-/
