That's not 100% true ;)
You _can_ compile the Subversion libs without BDB if you really want,
but you have to manually edit the config file (svn_private_config.h) and
remove some defines there.
The build then will throw a lot of compile errors for those libs which
require BDB, but the ones who don't will compile fine.
TSVN does that for its shell extension part which only links against the
'basic' libraries like libsvn_wc, libsvn_subr, ...
