[m-dev.] 11.07.1 --csharp-compiler... in scripts/Mercury.config... on Linux to delete??

Thanks Julien,

it seemed to work for me – surprisingly, ./configure accepted my old
compiler, but, I put 11.01 out of my PATH and set (having a 64bit system)

> export PATH=$PATH:scripts
and then
checking for mmc... /D/0/src/M/11.07.1/compiler/scripts/mmc
checking whether the above mmc works and is sufficiently recent... no
configure: error: You need a working Mercury compiler to bootstrap with

With your warning in mind, I just began to use the so created )o+> 11.07.1
(which is accepted by ./configure) for bootstrapping the actual
distribution – is there an alternative way (e.g. compiling from C instead
using the binaries of scripts/)?

Thanks a lot in advance, Nick
