They can't be used outside of Windows, they are visual studio files.

The problem is that I am checking out on a non-windows platform, but
trying to use them on Windows.

Why not? My real reason is wanting to have a single checkout for windows
and unix work. I'd like to halve the workload associated with verifying
changes. Visual studio can handle the unix endlines in all of the .c and
.h files just fine, it's only the build files that are breaking things,
and these are windows-only files.

But the files make zero sense in anything other than CRLF format. Using
\n makes them invalid files.
