I'm not sure about the thread libraries thing, but you could try using
an "svnadmin dump" on the Suse 9.0 machine to create a dump file
(guaranteed to be portable, and good for backups too), copy the dump to
the new Suse 9.1 machine, then do "svnadmin load" to create a new
repository. The new repos can be BDB or FSFS.
