I think these two are the only ones we need.

As a data point, both Mac OS X and Solaris come with zlib and OpenSSL by
default now. They don't have Neon and/or APR in their 'basic' installs. (Mac
OS X Server and Solaris do optionally bundle httpd 2.0; so APR might be
somewhere, but that's not a given.)

zlib and OpenSSL are by and large optional to use Subversion; if you want that
functionality and are on a bare-bones OS without that, you can go deal with
it. (OpenSSL also has patent issues too.)

You don't need BDB for a client.

Expat comes for free with APR.

I don't think its mandatory.
