My best guess at debugging would be to clean and extract the port:

$ sudo port -v clean py27-hgsubversion
$ sudo port -v extract py27-hgsubversion

Then edit the file that has the stacktrace to print out all the python
paths and modules (I forgot the variable names off the top of my head).

After you've editing that (perhaps printing it to stderr), try to
install again and hopefully it will print what it finds:

$ sudo port -v install py27-hgsubversion

Not sure what else to do besides that.
