I'd say it does not matter at all what the default is, as long as it is
very clearly documented, e.g. in the configure script's help output.

As far as I can see, packagers would prefer to use the system sqlite
so that bug fixes to the system's sqlite package benefit the Subversion
package (see below). Developers (i.e. ourselves) or people compiling
their own builds from tarballs might prefer the amalgamation because it
is more convenient.
