axiom-source: SPADEDIT command not present, axiom passes wrong path, some .spad missing.

Package: axiom-source
Version: 20050901-4ubuntu1
Severity: normal

When I click on a link to a spad file in the hyperdoc, it prints an
error message about a program called
/usr/lib/axiom-20050901/lib/SPADEDIT not being present.  I went ahead
and created one.  It gets passed two arguements, eg:

 SPADEDIT /usr/lib/axiom-20050901/../../src/algebra/ES.spad \

The script attempts to open that file now, but cannot, since the file is
not present.  I had to munge the path passed to the script also, as you
can see here:

exec /usr/bin/gedit /usr/share/axiom-20050901/$SPADFILE
exit 1

It would be nice if all of the spad files are shipped with the source,
and to have at least read-only access to them via the hyperdoc.
