The BerkeleyDB cannot be located on an AFS mount point from multiple machines,
and probably not from a single machine either. I believe someone already posted
a link to the page on www.sleepycat.com which explains this. CVS uses a
file-based repository, so (other than file locking issues), it can utilize a
remote mounted filesystem. Subversion uses BDB, which has specific requirements
which preclude using it like that.
