Hi Reinhard

I'm using SVN via a Windows GUI tool called Tortoise SVN and to checkout
the code I'm simply giving it a URL -- such as


To be honest I've never considered the SVN config file you mention so I
doubt it's being used. I do also use Tortoise SVN to
regularly checkout LuaTeX's source code -- e.g., from


and I have never experienced the \r\n line endings problem when building
LuaTeX --- the config.h.in
etc files all appear have \n line endings.

I know little about SVN but your suggestion regarding

config will solve the problem.

I'm happy to re-test compilation etc after any changes to the Tex Live
SVN config --- just let me know.
