Axiom gets all the information it needs from the string "debian".
* It gets this string from the basename of the AXIOM variable.
* This "debian" string is used to fetch and build the proper makefile.
* It does this by using notangle to extract the stanza
Makefile.debian
from the Makefile.pamphlet file.
* The selected stanza knows everything necessary to build a debian system.
* The final AXIOM system gets built in the $AXIOM subdirectory, e.g.
(place)/axiom/mnt/debian
and that can be copied anywhere. Everything else can be erased.
"linux" is a generic name that tends to work everywhere.

The configure script is broken. I have to remove it.
It is unnecessary anyway.

I built the configure script because people insisted that "everybody"
types "configure". It just needs to go away.
