MERCURY_OPTIONS is an environment variable not a compiler option.
(See the ``Enviornment variables chatper of the user's guide.)

If you want to set the detstack size at compile time you can use the
compiler's '--runtime-flags' option.  For exmample, in your
Mercury.options file do:

     MCFLAGS = --runtime-flags "--detstack-size 8192"
