another observation on this topic:
this config file suggests that we should treat *.ds? files as CRLF, and 
this is pretty much same as what I suggested for the autoconf files ...
though at least APR/APU doesnt follow this recommendation, and *.ds? 
files are 'svn:eol-style native' in svn repo.
Although I **dont** want to suggest now here that we chance that - *if* 
the *.ds? files were 'svn:eol-style CRLF' in svn then our daily 
snapshots would work for Windows MSVC users too.
