I'm trying to use GCL-2.5.3, and re-engineering the patches into there
as needed.

There are some additional files added ("EXTRAS= ...."). How general
to GCL are those files, or are they AXIOM-only? Could a general GCL
distribution have those files with no untoward side effects?

Does GCL 2.6.1 have the EXTRA= files?

I've added the patches to FreeBSD's noweb port, so the AXIOM port
can depend on that rather than carrying its own. Will the noweb
maintainers accept the patches for future releases?
