documentation of expat in INSTALL

Hello
      for local reasons I'm trying to install subversion outside the
freebsd ports system. I'm using /opt in a basic jail environment
under FreeBSD 4.9-STABLE.

after "fixing" sleepycat db problem, configure can't find expat
% ./configure -exec-prefix=/opt/local -prefix=/opt/local --with-ssl --with-berkeley-db=/opt/local/BerkeleyDB.4.2
...
checking whether to enable WebDAV support in neon... yes
checking for xml2-config... no
checking expat.h usability... no
checking expat.h presence... no
checking for expat.h... no
configure: error: no XML parser was found: expat or libxml 2.x required
configure failed for neon

there's only a brief mention of expat in INSTALL and maybe it should
have it's own section like the other packages. In particular it should
say that if your OS doesn't have expat/libxml you can use that
bundled with subversion but require the with-expat option like:
  --with-expat=/opt/src/subversion-1.1.0-rc2/apr-util/xml/expat

cheers,
Danny Thomas
