BDB repositories are probably available through Subversion installed
using those RPMs, but as of Subversion 1.2, the default repository
type is FSFS, not BDB.

If you're trying to import 2.7 GB all at once, you'll make a single
2.7-GB revision file, which exceeds APR 0.9's 2-GB limit. Use APR 1.0
if you need individual files (in this case, individual revisions) to
exceed this size.

Another solution, if you're not ready to upgrade to APR 1.0 yet, is
to import less than 2 GB at a time (break it up into separate
revisions). There's no problem with having more than 2 GB in the
repository; it's only a problem having more than 2 GB in a single
revision, with APR 0.9.
