Did you follow the instructions in UPDATING (see below)?
They may have some bearing on the problem.
AFFECTS: users of devel/subversion*
AUTHOR: Lev Serebryakov <lev at FreeBSD.org>
subversion now uses neon-0.28.x (www/neon28) port, and automatic
portupgrade will fail because neon26 will conflict with installed
You should upgrade neon library tohgether with subversion with
# portupgrade -o www/neon28 neon subversion
Also, if you use special subversion port with bindings, you
should upgrade your port to clean subversion port with
# portupgrade -o devel/subversion subversion-\*
and install needed bindings (p5-subversion, py-subversion and/or
ruby-subversion) after that.
If you use subversion with bindings, installed from devel/subversion
with custom options, don't forget to install separate bindings ports
after subversion upgrade.
