Yes. You could however leave out the mkdir step and do that in your
working copy. I personally use a shell script that does something like:

svnadmin create ${REPOS}
svn co file:///${REPOS} -d ${REPOS}-wc
cd ${REPOS}-wc
mkdir trunk tags branches
svn add trunk tags branches
svn commit -m "Add standard hierarchy."
cd ..
rm -rf ${REPOS}-wc

Justin voiced this concern because it wouldn't be the first time that
httpd/apr/apr-util were linked against a different db than libsvn_fs.
This has caused quite some grief in the past where people couldn't
get their servers to work. For the sake of prevention, please try
to get all components to consistently link to the same db. If they
are not on your system (are you passing --with-berkeley-db=<path> to
configure?), could you track down why not?
