[PATCH] Clear neon_auth_types before adding http_auth_types from server config

From: Jens Peters <jpeters7677_at_gmx.de>

Hello there,

Attached is a small patch for the configuration handling of http authentication types in neon>0.26 .It seemed like all http-auth-types where read
nicely from the server configuration, but neon_auth_types was at this time already filled with the defaults (BASIC and DIGEST plus NEGOTIATE if SSL).
Now you can e.g. really force BASIC, thus using other user credentials than the current, even if your server supports SSPI and SSL. Furthermore I
added some info to the help output that in the case of SSPI --username and --password will be completely ignored. That way windows users can get a
clue why nothing acts different in an SSPI environment when specifying a different user.

(I assumed that neon can make use of SSPI on Windows only, is this correct?)
