I don't think anything would have gotten hosed by having BDB
correctly installed. It would merely have given you the option of
accessing local BDB-based repositories also. Without BDB, you can
only access local FSFS-based repositories. But FSFS repositories have
been available since Subversion 1.1 and have been the default
repository type since Subversion 1.2 and aren't subject to the kinds
of issues that BDB repositories can encounter ("wedging").
