I created a new directory called `int/output' and I copied all
the files named `int/input/*.output' to int/output and deleted
them from int/input. These files were created when I did the
initial build of Axiom using the bootstrap files.

Then I ran 'make' again to create a new set of `int/input/*.output'
files. These output files are generated using the last *.o algebra
files that were built during the fixedPoint iteration.

Comparing the two sets of files using the command

  $ diff -au  -I 'Version' -I 'Time' -x '*\.input' int/output int/input

there are no differences.

The extra options -I on diff say to ignore any lines containing
the word 'Version' (since the version of Axiom that generated these
files are always different) and also to ignore any lines containing
'Time' since the timing changed slightly between the two different
versions (the fixedPoint version is apparently very slightly faster),
and finally the option -x says to not compare the *.input files
since I didn't copy them to int/output.
