If both machines are of the same processor architecture, then it
should be fine if you're serving FSFS repositories. If you're serving
BDB repositories, ensure that the version of BDB on the new machine
is the same as on the old machine. The new machine should have the
same or newer version of Subversion.

You can also dump and load, which is guaranteed to work always.
