How do I tell the BDB version of the repository? Does one of the BDB
tools do that (db_stat?).

I just discovered that the BDB files are endian dependant - the old
machine I had it on was little-endian, and my machine at home is
big-endian and the svn tools at home all complain that the magic number
on the BDB files is wrong. Can that be fixed easily?

Cheers, jas.
