With the fixedPoint script, I noticed that the old database directories, DEPENDENTS.DAASE and USERS.DAASE, under int/algebra, are not removed in preparation for the second iteration. Am I mistaken in thinking that this will influence the subsequent compilation?

You are correct. The src/algebra/Makefile.pamphlet that I am using on the axiom--windows--1 branch has been updated to properly rebuild the databases if any of the .NRLIBS/code.o files change. In the linux branches (e.g. axiom--main--1) the database build is still done via a kludge that requires you to delete the file called `dbcomplete' in order to force a rebuild. Alternately you could also delete the int/.spad files which will force them to be re-extracted from the pamphlet files and also trigger deletion of the dbcomplete file.

The database files were intended to be copied back into the source tree (by hand) as algebra was added to the standard build.
