problem migrating repository

From: Rich Drewes <drewes_at_interstice.com>

I am running an old version of Subversion (subversion-r1302.tar.gz) and I
am trying to move my repository to a more recent version of SVN using the
svnadmin dump technique described at
http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/notes/repos_upgrade_HOWTO . The
version of svnadmin in r1302 does not even contain the dump option.

I acquired the subversion-r2092f.tar.gz sources, and built the
svnadmin-old binary with --disable-shared, but when I try to use this
binary to svnadmin dump my repository I get this error:

svn_error: #21086 : <Berkeley DB error>
  Berkeley DB error while creating `strings' table for filesystem /home/svn/repository-new/ncs/db:
Invalid argument

Does anyone have any suggestions for migrating my repository to a more
recent version of SVN? Am I running a version of SVN too old to be
compatible with any svnadmin dump capability? The web page above seems to
imply that r2092 should be able to read any prior version's repository.
