The abort message does not refer to https/openssl but to a lack of the
`thread' module.  I think you should try to build Python with thread
support instead and see how things work from there.

The `keepalive.py' module of Mercurial tries to import the `thread'

    mercurial/keepalive.py:should be done with care when using multiple threads.
    mercurial/keepalive.py:  * there is nothing that prevents another thread from creating new
    mercurial/keepalive.py:import thread
    mercurial/keepalive.py:        self._lock = thread.allocate_lock()
