Hi Paul,

Can I ask that, prior to a merge, you rebase the upgrade_boehm branch to
eliminate the merges from master into upgrade_boehm?  Otherwise the
history will be unnecessarily convoluted on master.

prepare.sh is trying to link from the PARENT of the 'mercury' directory:

    ln -s ../libatomic_ops boehm_gc/libatomic_ops

prepare.sh could be more careful in case it is run with the current
directory not being the 'mercury' directory.

The two submodule repositories seem to use different naming conventions
for branches.  How about naming them ${UPSTREAM_BRANCH}-mercury
for our forks based on ${UPSTREAM_BRANCH}?
