The included patch makes subversion's neon configuration behave in a
more obvious way. The current behavior is odd given that subversion
release tarballs include a neon/ subdir. At present if one wants to
use the system's neon then the neon/ subdir must be deleted from the
source tree. As the Debian package maintainer I would rather make
fewer changes to the pristine upstream source. This patch allows the
user to ignore the neon/ subdir by passing the --with-neon switch to
* ac-helpers/neon.m4 (SVN_LIB_NEON): During configure if
--with-neon option is passed ignore any neon/ subdir in
the source tree.
