Sounds like there are multiple Berkeley DB libraries installed on the
machine and that Subversion is picking up a different version than the
one against which it was compiled (or configured).

Try ldconfig -v to see if the right library is getting picked up.

I'm not sure if it's feasible to do an strace on ViewCVS. If it is,
'strace -f' will show the exact library that is being picked up. You may
also be able to do 'strace -fp <pid-of-ViewCVS>' to attach to a running
ViewCVS and then run your command in another window to see which BDB
library is getting picked up.

To point to the right library, modify /etc/ld.so.conf or add a
BerkeleyDB-specific file in ld.so.conf.d, to point to the right version.

The recipe is:
dump repository to dumpfile
mv repos aside
create repos with same name, but with --fs-type fsfs
load into repos from the dumpfile
