No, you won't.

The log.* file format depends only on byte-order - so this won't be a
problem.

All you have to do is make *absolutely sure* that no processes are accessing
the repository, and delete the __db.* files from the db directory. You don't
even need to run 'svnadmin recover' - the db environment will be recreated
on the next access to the db.

I haven't tried this to move a repository between different OSes, but I have
done it when I was experimenting with temporarily deactivating the bdb
txn/log/lock subsystems to boost the speed of svnadmin load.
