Mercurial on OS X

There is more than one way to install Mercurial on OS X. I used port, because this will provide me all the missing unix tools.

Calling hg resulted in a traceback: ValueError: unknown locale: UTF-8
The page showed me a solution - adding
export LC_ALL=en_EN.UTF-8
export LANG=en_EN.UTF-8
to .profile.

After this Mercurial works just fine.
