These patches breaks down into a few categories:

1.) Additional build-system components for netware.

  I think it would be best if these were integrated into the
  configure/gen-make.py system instead of bolted on, as they appear
  to be. We took great pains to do this for Win32, and I think the
  results have been worth it.

2.) Patches to neon.

  These should be submitted to the neon development team. They
  look extremely innocuous, so I can't imagine them not being
  accepted.

3.) A patch to subversion/libsvn_fs/fs.c

  This patch uses "#ifdef NETWARE" to determine whether DB_PRIVATE
  should be passed to BDB. I think it would be more appropriate
  to resolve this at configure time, and generate some sort of
  BDB_NEEDS_DB_PRIVATE #define instead.

  Out of curiosity, are you sure that DB_PRIVATE is necessary
  and correct? I believe that unless you are using a threaded
  svnserve (and no other repository access method), that
  DB_PRIVATE is not safe to use.
