Creating the symlinks did it. Thank you.

The file README.MinGW-cross may need an update:

git clone -b stable https://github.com/mxe/mxe.git
didn’t work because the stable branch doesn’t exist. I just cloned without „-b stable“.

Neither the default host option nor „x86_64-w64-mingw32“ functioned. I used

I was confused about „Then install Mercury as usual: mmake install -j6“.
The installation instructions in the file „README“ are:
make install

Best regards,
