That's necessary and correct when libneon is built statically; the
dependent libraries must be pulled in explicitly.

Right - doing anything else is wrong. This change is not necessary for
any released version of neon, so I can only presume it's to work around
the broken Debian packaging of neon? If so it's certainly a bad idea;
tolerating bad packaging behaviour just encourages it. Just get people
to complain to Debian about the broken packaging, it will give them more
motivation to fix it.
