[m-dev.] Mercury, Emscripten, and WebAssembly

Hello again, I’ve made some progress with this but am still struggling. I was able to successfully carry out the “make" step with grade hlc.gc without errors occurring, but have not been able to run ‘make install’ successfully. For now I am attempting to make do with the results of the “make” step.
Currently I am stuck on a linking error: when attempting to do the final step of linking a simple mercury program object file with `emcc -o hello.js hello_init.o hello.o /mercury-srcdist-20.01.1/library/libmer_std.a /mercury-srcdist-20.01.1/runtime/libmer_rt.a /mercury-srcdist-20.01.1/boehm_gc/libgc.a`, I get two errors about symbols “MR_box_int64” and “MR_box_uint64” being undefined.
These two symbols are defined in mercury.h, so I would expect them to be present in libmer_rt.a, but examining it with llvm-nm seems to indicate that they are not defined there or in fact in any of the other library files. Can anyone help point me in the direction of what I am missing? Does libmer_rt need to be built in a specific way to ensure that “MR_box_int64” and “MR_box_uint64” are included?
