There have bee occasional issues with FSFS, but they are less frequent
than with BDB. You obviously have an environment that runs BDB reliably,
typically BDB only fails in certain environments that violate some conditions
BDB expects, so if you are setting up on the same machine either is fine.
FSFS is now the default b/c it works in more environments (i.e. looser
requirements on the filesystem), but I believe it is marginally slower - not
significantly slower, just noticeable under some testing conditions - for
day to day use network latency or working copy operations usually take
more time than on the repository side.
