Well, actually it *will* be one thing to fix. I've got to imagine that we'll
be using the standard "builddir" "srcdir" names, so we'd probably end up
replacing the pwd with a macro.
But hey... no matter.
Note that Mo DeJong has done some work to support outside builds. The latest
Neon includes some of his patches.

Neon should support it. Maybe not in the 0.8.1 that we're using, but
certainly the 0.9.x release (IOW, we may need to upgrade). Expat-lite would
definitely need it, although the "right" answer is to switch to using the
latest Expat (1.95) release directly and toss expat-lite.
