il grade or csharp grade?  For Mercury they are different things.

In the absence of knowing the exact commands you used to set the PATH,
configure Mercury etc, I can't say what's going on here.

If you are attempting to do the installation with build or installation
directories that contain spaces that may be causing problems.

On my Windows machine, I get an error free installation of the csharp
grade by doing the following:

- Start Visual Studio 2010 Command Prompt
- Run C:\MinGW\MSYS\1.0\msys.bat
- Unpack the 13.05 tarball (in my case into the direcotry
- Change into the source dist. dirctory and do:

     $ ./configure --prefix="C:\mercury-13.05" --enable-csharp-grade
     $ make
     $ make install
