According the ovdb manual pages one simply has to activate compression
in ovdb.conf and restart the database. From now on all new overview
records will be stored compressed (if exceeding 600 Bytes). This way
one will eventually end with an completely compressed overviews database
after a complete cycle through your article spool. I didn't want to
wait that long, thus I rebuilt my overviews database ;-)

Good luck. I'm thinking about doing so as well.
