install cvs2svn on mac

I am a newbie (new to Mac OS, as well as to CVS,SVN and bash/sh)
Already I installed SVN on my Mac OS X 10.4,
and now I am trying to install cvs2svn.

Although I did read the installation documentation,
I accidentally run 'make install' as a normal user: 'Server'
~ Server$ cd Desktop/cvs2svn/cvs2svn-2.0.1
~/Desktop/cvs2svn/cvs2svn-2.0.1 Server$ make install

Lots of things were copied, and in the end:
running install_scripts
copying build/scripts-2.3/cvs2svn ->
Permission denied
make: *** [install] Error 1

I corrected my mistake and run 'make install' as root:
~ root# cd /Users/Server/Desktop/cvs2svn/cvs2svn-2.0.1/
/Users/Server/Desktop/cvs2svn/cvs2svn-2.0.1 root# make install
python ./setup.py install
running install
running build
running build_py
running build_scripts
running install_lib
running install_scripts
changing mode of
to 755

Now everything seems fine to me, so I log in as normal user 'Server'
and try to execute cvs2svn:
~ Server$ cvs2svn -h
-bash: cvs2svn: command not found

Finally I experimented: export the path to cvs2svn and execute again.
~ Server$ export
~ Server$ cvs2svn -h
ERROR: your installation of Python does not contain a suitable
DBM module -- cvs2svn cannot continue.
See http://python.org/doc/current/lib/module-anydbm.html to solve.

Now I am wondering, do I realy need the Berkeley DB?
I read in the svn-book that at this moment
the newer FSFS is the default data store as of Subversion 1.2.
Today almost everyone uses the FSFS backend when creating new repositories.
So I assume cvs2svn also won't need it anymore?

Maybe I am just making a stupid mistake, I never did install things
like this before.
If any of you have a suggestion or hint, I would be very grateful!
Thanks in advance, lia
