And just to add to that, also make sure you handle case sensitivity with your 
checkouts/ins. File names in particular in the Windows environment may cause 
issues. For example you can have 2 programs under UV/aix called TEST and Test 
in the same program file (path). In Windows, which is case insensitive, you 
could only have one. I don't know hg but this may also be true for the 
repository if it's on a Windows server.

One thing to be aware of with whichever vcs you choose, pat attention
to end-of-line characters.

There are some configuration settings in mercurial to say "these are
always unix files" and will not let an checkin from a windows machine
inadvertently send dos Ctl-M's.

Git for aix is available here.
Mercurial for AIX can be found here.

Note that Tortoise will only let you operate on a local repo.  You can
push and pull to the remote dvcs server, but any graphs or logs you
view will be for your local clone of the servers repo.
