There are a few problems here, firstly the typo in the FAQ is probably
not helping, it should be:
But secondly, this is not the correct workaround in this situation
I've tried installing Mercury 0.13.1 on OpenSUSE 11 using gcc 4.3
and the following works:
(1) Unpack the source distribution from the tarball
(2) Create the file Mmake.params at the root of the source tree and
put the following line in it:
(3) Invoke configure as follows:
./configure --with-llds-base-grade=none \
plus any other options you require, e.g. --prefix, or --enable-librades.
(If you choose to select the set of library grades to install manually,
then make sure that hlc.gc is among them.)
(4) Do `make' and `make install'
(5) That's it! (hopefully)
I only tried out installing the libraries in a couple, none.gc and hlc.gc,
of grades, so it is possible there may be other problems. Please let
us know if that is the case.
