configure: do not require hg when configuring in an hg clone
When configuring in an hg clone, we need hg to compute the version string. It can happen that users do not have Mercurial (eg. if they got a snapshot rather that they did a full clone). In this case, we can still run, of course, so simply fill the version string with a sufficiently explicit value, that does not require hg. The date is a good candidate.
