You can't move a BDB repository to another machine like that unless
you've got the same version of BDB and the same operating system and
processor architecture, and even then it doesn't always work. It'd be
much better if you used svnadmin dump on the old machine to create a
dump file, brought that to the new machine, created a new repository
there, and used svnadmin load to load the dump file in. You could use
this opportunity to create an FSFS repository instead of another BDB
repository to avoid the various problems that plague BDB repositories.
