It probably uses a shared library. So, if you upgrade your BDB, you
need to be aware of this. Or if you use a binary distribution of
Subversion, such as might be common for Windows users, you need to be
aware of the version of BDB the binary comes with.

For any upgrade, if you're not sure, you can dump before upgrading,
then load after upgrading.

I recommend switching to FSFS so you never have to worry about this
