$ mmc
Error reading options file `/usr/lib/mercury/conf/Mercury.config'.
Mercury Compiler, version 14.01.1, configured for x86_64-pc-linux-gnu

Use `mmc --help' for more information.

Apparently the file is installed to /usr/lib64 because of some brilliant Gentoo hackery.  This makes it impossible to build any package written in mercury.
