It's possible the configure script isn't detecting either library on your
system and so isn't including the necessary commands in the makefiles. I have
two examples of configure lines, one with neon specified and one without and
both create working binaries. I think I needed to specify it because I was
building a static binary or needed a specific version. At the very simplest
though the following commands work on my machine:

tar xfvj subversion-1.6.11.tar.bz2
tar xfvj subversion-deps-1.6.11.tar.bz2
cd subversion-1.6.11/
./configure --with-ssl

however your mileage may vary depending on the libraries installed. I can
confirm I have packages for libneon and neon installed on my opensuse
desktop. Neon and serf are provided in the dependencies because they must be
needed at some point and I had the impression at least some of the
dependencies were picked up automatically if necessary but I guess this isn't
always the case.
