Why is that? Support for both BDB and FSFS builds fine and all tests 
pass with both. FSFS is the default on other platforms. Is there some 
reason it should not be included on Cygwin?

1.4.6 only supported up to 0.26.4, but I applied a patch from Debian to 
also support 0.27.2 and 0.28.2. 0.27.0 is not supported, though. Do you 
have the latest version of libneon-devel installed? If so, you should be 
building against 0.28.2.

1.4.6 won't build with libtool 2.x. It requires 1.5. I'm not going to 
address that because
   1. I'm not well versed with libtool.
   2. subversion 1.5.0 is imminent and supports libtool 2.x.

However, I'd be happy to include patches to support libtool 2.x if 
someone provides them.
