If tests fail because they rely on GNU features of various tools, you
could try to tweak the PATH used for the tests.

  TEST_ARGS = "PATH=/opt/csw/gnu:$$PATH"

Helped here in a few cases, don't know whether it does for mercurial.
TEST_ENV (instead of TEST_ARGS) should also do the job now that i think
about it.
