But it's true. The other .vcproj work because they compile
the source files directly. neon is compiled by the bat file.

I don't know what exactly is there not to understand. But a patch
file is attached. It's only for the bat file since I don't have VC6 and
can't change the project settings.

I don't agree with you here. Sure we have a generator. But this generator
doesn't work properly for VS.NET yet and doesn't generate the neon project
file. And that means that all people here with VS.NET can't compile
subversion without manually tweaking project files. If you had VS.NET
you would apply such changes immediately. But since you have VC6
and it works for you you don't.
I don't think waiting for the generator to work well is an option - my
suggestion would make the compilation for VS.NET work immediately.
And it won't prevent the work on the generator - it's just a fix _until_
the generator works.
And creating a .vcproj file alone doesn't work since it requires
changes to the bat file too. If you want a separate .vcproj file
for neon then you'd also have to provide a separate bat file.
