well, in that case i'll hold off on submitting the port until M4 is
out, so as to avoid giving people a bad impression of Subversion when
they first try it out.

well, it's good to hear that you can use the installed neon, but what
exactly do i have to do to make that happen. from what i can see
there doesn't seem to be a configure argument to specify one like
there is for berkeley db. would an m4 file (like the one for bdb)
need to be added?

cool, i had completely forgotten about expat. that'll be one less
lib i need to worry about conflicting with versions that are on the
system already.
