They aren't. The BDB's binary layout can even change between BDB revisions.
Porting them between systems is generally not possible. You should not back
up the repository but dumpfiles thereof, as is described in The Book, too.

Your best chance would be to dumping your repos on an i386 machine, possibly
you could try it in a virtual machine, I heard amd64 still has ways to run
i386 binaries or somesuch, but I don't know for sure.
