So far, Mercury has avoided gcc dependencies, hasn't it? (Though I know
it does benefit from having gcc extensions present, in terms of efficiency.)
If one just wanted a bare-bones Mercury environment (no Mmake), wouldn't
any ANSI C environment suffice, so long as someone in a Unix environment
compiles the Mercury compiler to ANSI C output?
I don't know whether the libraries assume POSIX, and I suppose that
filesystem access (esp. `/' vs. `:' vs. `\') would need changes.
