Which version of Subversion do you have? If svnadmin create tried to
make a BDB repository, I think you must have version 1.1.x or
earlier, because FSFS became the default repository type as of
Subversion 1.2.0. And 1.1.x is a bit old; we're currently on 1.3.2,
with a release candidate for 1.4 supposedly around the corner.

If possible, I recommend installing Subversion 1.3.2. If that's not
possible, and you're running Subversion 1.1.x, you could try
"svnadmin create --fs-type FSFS /data/svnrepos". If you have
Subversion 1.0.x or earlier, BDB is the only repository type and I
don't know anything about that BDB error so I can't suggest a way to
resolve it.
