I found this bug report:
which tells me that
  svnadmin recover /usr/local/svn
should fix things.

And it did. Now it was possible to use the BDB-based repository.

Looks like it is. And the file to look in to determine whether a repo
actually is fsfs or bdb, is:

After the "svnadmin recover" it worked fine to do a dump, and restore
into a new FSFS based repository, using the usual approach:

I don't have anything to check in right now, but a quick run of "svn
blame" and "svn log", and "svnmerge avail -l", seems to indicate that
all is well with the new fsfs repo.
