The config is passed by the caller. If it doesn't contain
SVN_FS_CONFIG_FS_TYPE, the default FS type is used, which is currently
always BDB but (with epg's forthcoming commit) would be FSFS if
Subversion was built without BDB support.

We wouldn't be creating README.txt for an existing filesystem.

That, or make the README.txt text unconditional (talk about both back
ends, don't discuss DB_CONFIG at all, whatever).
