Yup, please bump.
Hi fellows, I just bumped this in the science overlay. Please test !
There are a few issues including
-) some failed tests during the build (which don't stop upstreams build process however)
-) An internal copy of gcl
-) Not respecting flags
Bumped to 201009 in the science-overlay. The issue with the bundled gmp in the bundled dev-lisp/gcl is fully resolved, i.e. This package will build an internal copy of gmp-4 if you have only gmp-5 installed. Therefore it is not keyworded at the moment.

new version of axiom is released. Still no release of gcl :(

If someone could notify upstream. Unfortunately I don't use the software anymore, I'm purely into the IT department.

Last fall I've talked to upstream extensively about this. They are helpful, but in the end they don't see bundling software as a problem. They also don't see the non-releases of gcl as a problem. The axiom developer and the "gcl-upstream" know each other and exchange patches. There is some gcl development, just no releases, except in the form of "bundled with axiom".
There is new version available - from May 2011 http://axiom-developer.org/axiom-website/downloads/axiom-may2011-src.tgz
There is an updated version - from May 2017 http://axiom-developer.org/axiom-website/downloads/axiom-may2017-src.tgz
This ebuild it seems can be used as a draft for more updated version of axiom.
Sorry, forgot the link https://cgit.freedesktop.org/~cloos/overlay/tree/sci-mathematics/axiom/axiom-201205.ebuild
