You do not have to create a new repo with 1.4... you can continue to use
    the existing ones without problem, but you wont benefit from the new
repository delta algorithms (smaller repo size and faster network

If you want to gain these new benefits, you will need to do a dump/load
(and create the new repo with 1.4 svnadmin).

See the following for more details:

You might find the following helpful as well. It is a link to some
scripts that someone posted for doing the actual repository upgrade on
Windows. If you are not on Windows, you can at least see the steps that
were taken. Apparently these were used to upgrade over 800 repositories
(sounds well tested to me):
