Correct. Without BDB, you end up with an svn client only capable of
speaking to a network. BDB is required if you want a client that can
hit a repository directly (file:///), or if you want a server process
(svnserve, mod_dav_svn).

Is this really the case? file:/// won't work on SMB-mounted drives?
Why is this thus?
