-- Not quite true. I'm sure I read that the bdb format cannot be
transferred from one filesystem to another. But the default format is
FSFS - it is likely that is the one you are using. In that case you can
  just copy it - we copied ours from a windows 2000 system with NTFS to
a Ubuntu linux system with FAT32 without problems.

Still a dump load cycle is very straightforward.
