The easy way is to install the same version of svn that was used when
you created the hotcopy. Make a dump (svnadmin dump). Then you can
switch to the new svn version and load the dump (svnadmin load).

As you can see svn dump is the right way for backups.

In case of bdb engine it's possible to convert the database using
db<old>-dump | db<new>_load
I have a script doing that, which I used in the past, write me if you
need it, but I think the first solution is the right one.
