Subversion has a very restrictive neon version check, because in the
past, minor version updates of neon have caused breakage for
Subversion. Note that neon has not reached 1.0 yet, so they have been
known to introduce major changes which one wouldn't normally see in
minor versions of a post-1.0 product. Hence the strict version check.
neon 0.26.4 and compiling subversion 1.4.6 with --disable-neon-
version-check works for me on Mac OS X 10.4, but YMMV.
