[Axiom-developer] build axiom on amd64 (= x86_64) linux Suse/Novell

since the linux binary version does not work
on my Suse/Novell 10.1 amd64 machine
I had to build from source (source from svn, silver version).
I met two problems, fortunately not too difficult:

 configure just identifies the system as linux, and this leads to
linking errors. The makefile.pamphlet must be modified
so that the variables XLIB and LDF point to 64 bits libraries
LDF=' -L /usr/x11R6/lib64 -L/usr/lib64 -L/lib64'

and CCF must be supplemented with "-m64"
to make sure that everything is coherent.

in (axiomdir)/src/doc/bookvol1.pamphlet
two definitions must be erased or commented-out because they are already
in axiom.sty

%% spadgraph are the actual text that you type at the axiom prompt for draw
{\begin{flushleft}{\tt #1}\end{flushleft}\vskip .1cm }

% spadfunFrom records the function name and domain in the index
\newcommand{\spadfunFrom}[2]{{\bf #1}\index{#1 @\begingroup \string\bf{}
#1 \endgroup}\index{#2}}

When they are present, latex hangs, without error message since it is
run in non-interactive mode.
