test-mergesort: use repeatable random numbers

Use MINSTD to generate pseudo-random numbers consistently instead of
using rand(3), whose output can vary from system to system, and reset
its seed before filling in the test values.  This gives repeatable
results across versions and systems, which simplifies sharing and
comparing of results between developers.
