cvt_cyrusdb before upgrade

Hello All,

I am looking at upgrading from Cyrus 2.3.16 to 2.4.8. If I convert all 
the dbs from berkeley to skiplist before hand, is there any need to even 
build 2.4.8 with berkeley db support? (Using FreeBSD ports)

I know 2.4.8 will automatically update the dbs, but I figure if I did it 
before hand, I could remove one more dependency from my system.

If so, is there any special trick to running cvt_cyrusdb, or do I just 
shut things down and run it as the cyrus user?
