I actually did this last night.

First you need to create your fsfs repository (somewhere separate from
your existing one). My original repository was in /var/svn/repos. So I did

svnadmin create --fs-type fsfs /var/svn/repos2

Then you can do the transfer in one operation:

cd /var/svn

svnadmin dump repos | svnadmin load repos2

After that I just had to make sure the permissions were right on the new
repository, moved the old one away and put the new one in its place.
Everything else worked fine with the new repository.

Hope this helps.
