1.1.0_rc2 update db version 4.2 on existing repositories

I installed subversion-1.1.0_rc2 on Gentoo Linux. My previous repositories
(last used with 1.0.6) are now giving an error message about the Berkely
Database version:

> svn commit --message="Update docstrings"
> svn: Commit failed (details follow):
> svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
> svn: Unable to open repository
> 'file:///home/myuser/svn/acme/trunk/acmeutil'
> svn: Berkeley DB error while opening environment for filesystem
> /home/myuser/svn/acme/db: Invalid argument svn: bdb: Program version 4.2
> doesn't match environment version

Gentoo Linux allows several different versions of programs to be installed
simultaneously. On this laptop, I have package 'db' versions:


installed. It would seem that the error message indicates some sort of
update procedure on each repository to convert database storage formats.
Alternatively, I wouldn't mind doing a dump-restore on each, if someone
can spell out the steps.

Further alternative is if anyone can suggest a procedure for dumping the
existing repositories, and importing them back to new fsfs repositories
enabled by 1.1. I'm hoping to move all these small repositories to fsfs

Any suggestions? Thanks.
