Two differences:

    1. Many systems come with Berkeley DB pre-installed; among the
       free Unices, it's pretty much a standard system library, I
       think.

    2. Subversion is not as sensitive to the BDB version as it is to
       the Neon version. Very likely, any sufficiently recent version
       of Berkeley will work for people trying to build Subversion;
       whereas historically, we've needed to specify the *exact*
       version of Neon to use with a given Subversion tree.

Yeah, I think we should leave that part out.

Thanks for the patch! Ben says he'll take care of it sometime today.
