[mercury-users] I am not able to compile Mercury 0.13.1

What I really did was:

/configure --prefix=c:/mercury  --disable-most-grades

Pay attention that  the installation prefix was specified as a full windows path with a drive letter (except use `/' instead of `\').  I also added the option --disable-most-grades, to save time. I am afraid that the option is causing the problem...

I have been using Mercury for since 2003, and compiled it many times. In particular, I compiled version 0.13.1 for MinGW at least ten times. However, when I tried to repeat the operation today, compilation ended without noticeable events, but the compiler failed to work. It complained that it could not find the buildin.m library. The first thing that I noticed is that the compiler offered to perform the installation outside the directory containing the sources. Therefore, I configured it to install the binaries in drive C:

./configure --prefix=/c/mercury

which it did. I am using MinGW, as I said before. Then I tried to compile hello.m from MinGW:

mmc --make hello

The compiler could not find the libraries, or enven the include files with extension .h. Any hint?
