I'll answer your questions:
1. What do you mean? No output?
I don't get any EPS file. When I run mpost on my file myfig.mp, I get myfig.2 (the number at the end varies as you know). So I don't get any EPS file generated. Setting the prologues:=3 doesn't seem to generate the EPS file.
2. Is there an error message?
No, nothing at all. I tried just to run it on a non-existent file (garbage characters) and I still don't get any error messages. It only gives me the impression that it's being executed without any errors.
