Hi Sergey.

It looks like you've typed "make depend".  When building from the source
distribution you don't need to do this, it is only used to determine the
mercury build dependencies.  Since the source distributions contain
intermediate C files this information isn't used.

Please see the instructions in the INSTALL file.

Other common installation problems are documented in the FAQ:

I hope this helps.
