svnadmin load is slow for many small revisions

After transition from debian lenny to squeeze I recompiled my version of SVN 1.4 (yes, I do need exactly 1.4). I tried to load a dump with many 1 file revisions into the BDB-based repository.
I'm curious what that might be? I tried to compile against different versions of APR (from 1.3 to 1.5) with BDB 4.8. I used libtool 1.5 since autogen.sh does not work with libtool 2.2. May this be somehow related to my issue? Maybe some compilations flags are wrong for a new system, or some libraries that I'm linking against (e.g. neon)?
I have no real clue what that might be, so I will highly appreciate if somebody can give me any pointers, even vague ones or possible hints to try, since I really need SVN 1.4 for my other projects.
P.S. CPU usage is very high, waiting for IO was about high (that what I would expect) and decreases to 0% over the time.
Thanks a lot in advance,
