The problem appears to be that GCC has changed the meaning of
'inline' and 'extern' which causes GCL (the underlying lisp) to fail to
build. This is supposed to be fixed in the next release of GCL.

The fix is calling gcc with -std=gnu89 when compiling GCL

The next release of GCL is still 'experimental' so Axiom has not
yet integrated it into the build. There are several short-term workarounds.

Currently Axiom is released on Docker when the algebra changes. Most
of the other changes are documenation which is available on the
Axiom website or Wikipedia so there is no need to update Docker.

If you're only interested in using (rather than developing) you could
   yum install axiom
from the debian version.

Another alternative is to run it in VirtualBox using Ubuntu 16.04
