Graham, are you using Karl's SVN config file?


Karl, I think that it's sufficient to replace svn:eol-style=native
with svn:eol-style=LF for particular files in the SVN config file.

I'm not sure whether it's an autoconf bug.  If it is, then zillions of
Unix tools are broken, not only because regexps assume that $ means \n
and not \r\n, shebang lines with \r at the end don't work, and so on.

I'm confident that a proper SVN setup is sufficient.
