Another option is import the neon source directory into the SVN
repository itself. neon has a set of autoconf macros which let you build
the source directory stand-alone pretty easily. Advantages of doing it
this way:

1) nobody has to download & unpack neon by hand after checking out SVN
 - they can't get the wrong version by mistake like Ben
 - updating to a newer version of neon is simpler

2) gets rid of a messy recursive configure
 - and the top-level svn configure script gets arguments such as
--with-ssl for configuring neon properly

3) allows building svn against an external neon library
(--with-neon=/blah) (possibly... there may be some problems with the two
copies of expat in there)

4) gets rid of some of the hackery needed to get neon+expat happy

I can do this if it is an acceptable change.
