It looks like you are for some reason using a different C compiler
than GNU C.  Why?  Is this deliberate?

If so, you need to follow the directions in the "Using a different C
compiler" chapter of the Mercury User's Guide.  In particular, you
need to use a grade which does not require GNU C extensions,
such as `none.gc' or `hlc.gc'.  Also, it is possible that additional
steps may be required; see the README.MS-VisualC file for some
documentation.  See also

If it is not deliberate, then make sure that you have gcc installed
and in your PATH.

I recommend using GNU C!
