I wonder if the problem is that he wasn't using the right BDB in the first
place. Back around 1.0, IIRC, there were problems when trying to build
with BDB 4.2.52. I believe the configure script (for apr-util) wasn't
correctly picking up the new library yet. Perhaps when Steve built it,
it went unnoticed, and he's been using the older BDB.

If this is the case Steve, rebuilding a version of SVN linked against the
old BDB will bring it back to life. There is a way to do an in-place
upgrade of the backend databases, but you'll need to check Sleepycat's
home page, as I don't recall how to do that offhand. You can also do a
dump & load, making sure that you copy your hook scripts as well.
