This seems very reasonable. Let me code review them. psvn.el actually has
an update I may grab.

That actually came from Fedora 17 testing.  Fedora has been renaming a
bunch of utilities with "lib" as a prefix. It makes keeping consistent
compatibilities.... awkward. There are other awkwardnesses, so I can roll
back that change.

Fedora 17 is going to be a very, very painful upgrade for many Repoforge

I bet you have neon-devel installed. That causes the autoconf to detect the
wrong neon. I've not pursued that, much preferring to use a "mock"
environment to avoid just that sort of library incompatibility.

Hmm. I *could* teach the %setup to check for neon-devel, and exit if
present on RHEL 4. That could be nasty in a system that is used to build
other software....
