Not as far as I know.
BerkeleyDB and Postgres/Oracle/MySQL/etc. does not work at the same level of abstraction.

You don't need to have a strong knowledge about BDB, as you never have to handle BDB files
directly: everything is done through the svn and svnadmin tool, so you don't have to mind about
the know how of the database - even backups. You might want to think more in term of an abstract
  file format than about a database [from both the user and the administrator perspectives].

If you really do not want to use BDB for some reason, wait until release 1.1 (release candidate
are already available) which can use a proprietary file management (FSFS) instead of BDB.
