Yes they are, even worse jumping between same system can be problematic
if they don't have same version of some libraries not just Gramps.
Gramps don't come with database engine but uses one found in system and
is very sensible on that.

To override that problem make sure to all Gramps installations use same
database version.

For example:
In Windows Python-2.7.2 includes by default Berkeley DB version 4.7.25
and their python binding of version 4.8.4.1
So to be compatible wit that in Linux download
http://download.oracle.com/berkeley-db/db-4.7.25.tar.gz
build and install it locally (to not interfere with rest of system).
Next download
http://pypi.python.org/packages/source/b/bsddb3/bsddb3-4.8.4.tar.gz
build it against previously maked db version and install it somewhere
(locally)
Use environment variables LD_LIBRARY_PATH to inform Gramps of location
of first one and PYTHONPATH for second one.

For the technical user. I was wondering, do you not also need in gramps.ini, under preferences section

 use-bsddb3=True

if you do this?
