Neon version not correct?

Hi folks,
After several weeks of not building svn I've decided to give it
another go. However configure complains it can't find the right
version of neon.

I'm on OS X with fink, and have had no (insurmountable) problems
getting this running in the past. I've read INSTALL many times in the
past, but am doing this mostly from memory this time. If my report
sounds like I've missed something in there, please feel free to tell
me to go back and read it again. But this seems like a real problem.

I'm configuring apr, apr-util, and neon in-tree. I bootstrapped and
then updated my old WC to be current (2988). I just updated CVS for
apr, apr-util, and pulled neon-0.22.0.tar.gz as instructed in
INSTALL. But when I run configure I get this output:

----------begin copy & paste --------------------->
configure: checking neon library
checking neon library version... 0.22.0
You have a neon/ subdir containing version 0.22.0,
but Subversion needs neon .
Please either install neon on this system


get neon from:
unpack the archive using tar/gunzip and rename the resulting
directory from ./neon-/ to ./neon/
configure: error: no suitable neon found
<---------------------- end copy & paste-----------

It looks like the desired neon version isn't set somewhere. But I
did look in build/buidcheck.sh and it appears to be set in

I don't have the brain power to track this down this late, but maybe
someone else knows what's going on or has seen this. I just tried to
run configure with --disable-neon-version-check and it still failed
in the same way! (Which, btw, is annoying because it reconfigures
apr & apu every time I run configure.)

Here are my configure options:
with and without

I don't know if this matters, but I noticed that my version of sed in
my path is /sw/bin/sed (fink) instead of the OS X default sed:
   mankin% which sed
   mankin% sed --version
   GNU sed version 3.02

Sorry to waste valuable svn developer time on getting my copy compiled :-\ ,
