I uploaded changeset bf7afddcdca2, pullable from here:
(based on clean e29557d687c9).

The only source change is:

--- a/mercurial/	Fri Mar 21 00:55:53 2008 +0100
+++ b/mercurial/	Fri Mar 21 11:46:51 2008 +0100

             if update:
+                dest_repo.ui.status(_("updating working directory\n"))
                 if not checkout:
                         checkout = dest_repo.lookup("default")

The rest are all changes to tests/*.out files.

I did run the regression tests on FreeBSD:

%uname -smr
FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE i386

%python -i
Skipped test-convert-baz: missing feature: GNU Arch baz client
Skipped test-convert-darcs: missing feature: darcs client
Skipped test-no-symlinks: system supports symbolic links
Failed test-bundle: output changed
# Ran 242 tests, 3 skipped, 0 failed.

(there was one last changed output I accepted in that run)
