That's why I asked for the full output. ;-)  The answer is in there:

  --> Processing Dependency: neon = 0.29.3-2.el6 for package:  
  neon-devel-0.29.3-2.el6.x86_64 

Yes, that's the typical old-school non-arch-specific
  Requires: %name = %version-%release
base package dependency, which we make arch-specific at Fedora for
some time to avoid these dependency issues.

So, your theory has hit the nail on its head. Erasing neon-devel or
making available its update will fix the dependency issue.
