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.
