All my boxes have been upgraded in the last two weeks to SuSE 10.2...
I'm installing solaris 11 on 64bit intel-based machine I just
acquired, once I'm finished I'll try testing there.

Anyway, it is useful configuration information to have.
Did we have Axiom buildable with another Lisp system we would have a
different angle from which to attack the issue...
