If it's exactly the same type of machine with exactly the same operating
system, you could just copy the files. This is very sensitive to changes
in machine architecture, operating system, and library versions though.
It might not work and is risky.

You should probably do a dump/load cycle:

svnadmin dump /path/to/repos > dumpfile
(copy dumpfile to new machine)
svnadmin create /path/to/newrepos
svnadmin load /path/to/newrepos < dumpfile
