revamping an 0.14.0 repo

From: Hamilton Link <hamlink_at_nmia.com>

Round about 0.14.0 I made a repository, and as I was getting ready to
upgrade to 0.14.2 I dumped it to a file (and just fyi, I know dump pumps
to stdout, I _did_ redirect that into a file and I *know* I had an
actual file sitting there). I just installed 0.14.2 but apparantly I'm
an idiot and deleted my dump file somewhere along the line.

So I *could* go back to 0.14.0 rev something, build everything all over
again, dump my repo, re-"make install" 0.14.2 again, and load my repo,
but I'm wondering if there's an easier way. When I try to just use the
latest svn with my old repo it says I'm missing the "format" file, and
if I put a dummy in it's place with the number 1 in it, svn gives me an
error that node i.0.3 somethingorother in the database can't be found.
Similar things happen when I try to check out files as when I try to
dump the repo with the new version of svnadmin. Am I hosed and must go
back, or did the db format not actually change much and is there a
sneaky way around this?

Sorry for the trouble, but it takes forever to build everything on my
machine. If there's not a groovy way around all this, does anyone have
an educated guess if the latest apache, apr, apr-util, and neon will
work (i.e. link against and produce a usable 0.14.0 svnadmin) with the
older svn or if I really need to rebuild everything from the older
sources (which thankfully I still have archived, so pinning down the
system I had before won't be the issue)?

thanks,
hamilton
