Via serial console, presumably...

  $ hg help

  $ make clean
  $ hg view                     # find which revision/changeset you want
  $ hg update $REVISION         # now select it (you may need 'update -C')
  $ make

If you're using a new-enough mercurial, "hg bisect" may help.

Of course, if you knew what revision you were using, that'd help :-)
