Followup from IRC: we determined that the reason Doug's neon library
didn't support XML functions is, he used 'configure --without-webdav'.
If you don't say --without-webdav, the neon configure script will
indeed find an appropriate XML library or die trying.

Now ... it would be possible to detect, explicitly, that neon was built
--without-webdav, and tailor our error appropriately. But it'd be ugly
code. Is it worth it? Do other users run into this problem?
