To save you all from having to recompile everything, I changed that
to instead define a call_engine() function in mercury_bootstrap.c.
See the diff below.

I discussed this change to support catching exceptions in call_engine
briefly with Zoltan and he didn't have any objections, so I will go
ahead and commit this now.


	Add a definition of call_engine() that calls MR_call_engine(),
	for bootstrapping.
