You can't compare ldd output on different machines like that, ldd
loads all the libraries recursively. You are probably getting
libdb-4.2 indirectly from one of the other FC3 libraries. Try this to
see what's in the binary

$ objdump -x usr/bin/svn | grep db
  NEEDED libgdbm.so.2
  NEEDED libdb-4.0.so
$ objdump -x usr/lib/libsvn_fs_base-1.so | grep db
  NEEDED libgdbm.so.2
  NEEDED libdb-4.0.so
