This is an issue with the FreeBSD port system in that they always delete
the .la files for all installed ports. Neon, like APR, will always
install the .la files; therefore, it is correct for Subversion to assume
that it is available. Since the FreeBSD ports system breaks this
assumption, they need to account for this behavior in their port.

So, this isn't something we can (or should) fix upstream. -- justin
