You are correct, good point.

How about --with-neon requires an argument?

$ ./configure --with-neon
. . .
configure: checking neon library
configure: error: --with-neon requires an argument.

Revised patch follows.


        * ac-helpers/neon.m4 (SVN_LIB_NEON): During configure if
          --with-neon=PREFIX option is passed ignore any neon/ subdir
          in the source tree. Instead use the the neon installed in
          PREFIX if possible.
