I don't think anything needs to be changed. How is Subversion to know
that you intend to use your binaries as both a server and a client
unless you tell Subversion this? You could just as easily be
intending to make just a server, on which serf and neon wouldn't be
needed. Or you could be intending to make just a client, on which
apache wouldn't be needed.

Now I haven't tested this, but hopefully if you specify --with-serf=/
foo or --with-neon=/foo and it doesn't find those libraries in /foo
then it would exit with an error.
