I'm sorry, I wasn't specific enough there. These failures *only* occur when
the neon configure is run as a part of the big subversion configure run, not
when I run the neon configure stand-alone.

So, yes, I too can run those command lines in the neon directory with no

I'm using:
 libtool 1.4.0a (1.922.2.27 2001/08/18 22:31:47) [1]
 autoconf 2.52

The part of the configure output that is interesting looks like shown below.

Ah, it just struck me. Is this perhaps because I generate the main subversion
configure with autoconf 2.52, while the neon one is built with an older
version and the 2.52 one passes environment variables to the neon one in a
way the older generated one doesn't support?

[1] = I need this recent version of libtool for another project of mine,
      this version is from the libtool CVS branch-1-4 as no previous version
      of libtool seems to work correctly on OpenBSD!
