The short answer is, unfortunately, "no". Axiom (FriCAS, OpenAxiom)

There is (currently) no such type as "symbolic integer".
There has been a lot of discussion on how to implement what you want,
but as far as I know, nobody is working on it. Would you be interested?
Hmm... I don't (yet) know any lisp. For my own needs, I could
probably hack something up with pattern recognition rules analogous to
those in section 0.1.8 of Jenks and Sutor - but I'm not sure if I
could give it sufficient generality to be any use to anyone else.
