Just try to edit the config header file and compile. Then you'll see if
it works or not. But I guess it should work, because I just don't
believe that there are windows specific code parts in Subversion which
would call BDB specific code even if the define isn't there, but follow
the define on other platforms.

I don't know. I would have to try myself.

There are step-by-step build instructions available. Check the links on
the Subversion homepage. Just build it once as those guides tell you.
Once you've done that, _then_ (not before) edit the config file and try
to build without BDB. Never try too many things at once: first build as
told, then try special builds. Otherwise you'll never know what and why
something breaks.
