But your patch doesn't set any defines or macros for neon?
It only sets the include paths and links to the lib, but I don't think
that's enough for neon to really use it.

I don't quite get what you did with your build. On your web page, you
mention that the saslGSSAPI.dll is needed, but SASL is used with the
svn:// protocol and neon is used with the http(s):// protocol.
I'm confused...
Also, I've checked out the source from
svn://anonsvn.mit.edu/krb5/tags/kfw-3_2_2-final - but I haven't found
the build instructions yet...
