The reason it's called 0.26 rather than 0.25.6 or 0.25.7 is because the
developers have made some incompatible changes. Historically,
subversion has had to be adapted to each new major release of neon, and
in fact the library has caused enough trouble that minor releases are
manually approved as well.

I've been told that subversion will compile against neon 0.26 (if you
update the configure-time checks, as the gentoo ebuild does) but it
won't quite run properly. I haven't verified this. Do you use
subversion with http:// and https:// URLs? If not, you aren't testing
the neon code paths. (:
