It used to be that the svn version info was pulled from embedded constants in  I agree that depending on having mercurial (and, presumably, a repo!) at build time is wrong.  These constants need to be pre-computed when a release tarball is built and the mercurial dependency removed from the generated Makefile.  I'm not sure how we make that work correctly in a development build, but I'm sure the release managers will figure something out.
