Hello all;

This is a small changeset to fix a problem where on some platforms (Solaris and possibly others) the configure script doesn't properly detect the absence of autoconf or mercurial because which returns a string for the failure condition.

The recipe used was previously in hgforest.sh for it's detection of the mercurial executable.
