This is only half the truth: the BDB can't be used on DOS based systems. That
means, that you can't use SVN's file:// on such a system. It has nothing to
do with serving or not, although usually, the server is the part that uses
that mode to access the SVN filesystem.

Yes, the database has different layouts on different machines. However, for
your case I seem to remember that MS Windows/x86 and Linux/x86 use compatible
binary layouts.
