Searching about this issue, I see that people say that the old
behaviour was restored in Mercurial 2.1.1 (released 2012-03-01).

Maybe wrap "hg pull" with some script and examine what last line of
its output says. People say that it is localized, but you can know
what language your FreeBSD instance uses.  Or just ignore the return
code for now - until you can install 2.1.1.
