License exceptions are only needed for things with licenses that aren't

Neon is LGPL and zlib's license is a very loose, public-domainy sort of
thing, so those aren't problems.

However, I had forgotten about OpenSSL, whose license is the bane of
GPLed projects everywhere. :) And I wasn't aware of the existence of
apr-iconv. I'm told that it is possible to get the Gtk+ 2.0 python
bindings working on Win32, so it could become an issue someday.

I'll update the gsvn legal boilerplate to include exceptions for these
two libraries. Thanks for pointing them out.
