Of course I am also looking forward to Norbert's updated version but
until then I see something really strange to me.

Wow. That really says _i386.deb there? I am sure it does. How is
What does this say?
apt-cache policy libneon24
My amd64 machine shows a version from http://amd64.debian.net in
sarge/main. That is libneon24_0.24.7.dfsg-2_amd64.deb for me and is
definitely not an i386 version. Seeing _i386.deb there seems like an
indication of a bigger problem.

Depending upon the configuration of the /etc/apt/sources.list file (if
it is correct or not) you could always manually download the correct
libneon24 and install it with sudo.
$ aptitude download libneon24

Get:1 http://amd64.debian.net sarge/main libneon24 0.24.7.dfsg-2 [87.1kB]
Fetched 87.1kB in 1s (51.8kB/s)
And then install it.
$ sudo dpkg -i libneon24_0.24.7.dfsg-2_amd64.deb
But I am suspecting something is really strange somewhere because I do
not see the same behavior that you are seeing on my amd64 system. But
I have not updated subversion there since 1.2.3dfsg1-2bpo1.
