Unless your neighbors are very localized (in an undistorted projection),
I would recommend using some geodesic methods (in ArcMap or OGR).
For ArcMap, you can beat this free add-on (Tools for Graphics and Shapes)
which does geodesic lengths, areas, and azimuths no matter the input
For OGR, I would recommend running the lat/lon pairs through or Haversine
or Vincenty's equations.
