The message you are getting

    SOCK-SEND-INT is invalid as a function.

means that the axiom C library is not linked into the AXIOMsys image.

'axiom' is actually a shell script. it invokes 'sman' (superman)
which starts several processes hyperdoc, the browser ; clef, the
command line editor function ; AXIOMsys, the actual axiom interpreter ;
and viewman which handles 2D and 3D graphics.

sman communicates over sockets to these processes and the axiom
interpreter uses SOCK-SEND-INT to send integers. it appears that
your AXIOMsys does not have the C routines linked in. this is odd
as the second step of the build process is to compile the C code
and the third step is to build GCL and link it into the image.

i'm not sure what the details are of the texmacs connection
but if it starts AXIOMsys directly then there won't be an sman
process running so graphics will not work. the easiest test for
that case is to see if the axiom browser starts when you start
axiom from texmacs. if not then the texmacs interface is probably
only running the AXIOMsys image.
