merge: warn when internal:merge cannot merge symlinks

A follow-up to d084df89d948.

internal:merge should never be picked for merging symlinks ... but in the test
suite we have HGMERGE="internal:merge" which bypasses all the usual merge-tool
cleverness. Without any output it can be hard to figure out what happened and
where the problem is.
