I would recommend only building a few grades, and not just letting
configure do it's thing. If you're new to Mercury, then usually just
something like


would get you started. Otherwise, you get lots of redundant grades, and
trailing grades (which you shouldn't use unless you know why you need
them). There are also decldebug grades, profdeep grades for profiling, and
memprof for memory profiling, and spf grades for single-precision floats,
but those come in useful less often.
