IPv6 support not enabled in builds

I've searched the list histories and the like and seen reports that IPv6
is not supported but it must be a problem with external libraries. I'm
not sure if this predates the current system, where the libraries are
part of one build system ... I simply don't know enough about
TortoiseSVN's history; I also don't have win32 dev tools so can't check
this. Sorry. I don't develop on Win32, but do want to be able to
support people who do, so have TortoiseSVN installed on a box to check
it out.

I too am getting problems with using IPv6-only hosts because TortoiseSVN
reports that it couldn't resolve the hostname. Reading the trunk
source, I see that neon is not being built with IPv6 support enabled; it
needs to be turned on. I _think_ that it's just a matter of changing
ext/build/neon.build to pass ENABLE_IPV6=yes.

Justification follows.

neon only uses the address resolution routines for modern address
handling, including IPv6, if USE_GETADDRINFO is defined. This is
ext/neon/src/ne_socket.c:ne_addr_resolve(). neon.mak contains:
----------------------------8< cut here >8------------------------------
# Support for IPv6
!IF "$(ENABLE_IPV6)" == "yes"
----------------------------8< cut here >8------------------------------

ext/neon/INSTALL.win32 contains:
----------------------------8< cut here >8------------------------------
Build neon with IPv6 support

To build neon with support for IPv6, use parameter ENABLE_IPV6.

  nmake /f neon.mak ENABLE_IPV6=yes

This requires a copy of the Platform SDK which contains the IPv6
headers and libraries.
----------------------------8< cut here >8------------------------------

ext/build/neon.build appears to contain all the flags passed.
