I could be wrong, but I read this as saying does he have to pay Sleepycat a
license if he is using Subversion to manage a closed source product. I
think the answer to that would be no.

The only case where you might have to pay a license fee to Sleepycat would
be if you were going to take Subversion and use it to build a new closed
souce product based on Subversion.

Yes, that's my understanding. If you create a closed-source product and
sell it, and it depends on BDB, then you must pay licensing fees to
Sleepycat. For example, Collabnet's own product must do this. If your
project is open-source, then there are no fees.
