 Berkeley DB, DB File on multiple platforms

This might be a stupid question and if the answer is FAQed
somewhere, point me there but this is driving some new
Perl folks crazy.

Are the databases created with Berkeley DB and DB_File from
Perl platform-dependent?   We are using the latest version
of Berkeley DB (10.171 from Sleepycat) and Perl 5.005_02.
On SGI machines, the databases created from a text to dbm
perl script are 16K for a simple example, on a PC running
Solaris, the same script, Berkeley DB and Perl 5.005_03
creates a 40K DB.  The solaris created db cannot be
manipulated on the SGIs and vice versa.

Any suggestions that we might be overlooking?
