ok, thanks.

no idea, probably this is intended behavior since most projects only 
provide LF-style tarballs??

unfortunately I dont have a MSYS implementation of svn, and here the cat 
starts biting into its tail:
1 - up to now MSYS/MinGW support for APR/APU is incomplete/not fully working
2 - svn depends on APR/APU
3 - hard to build an MSYS/MinGW svn because of 1

beside that even if all would work fine I dont know (yet) if subversion 
can be configured to use LF as native on windows platform, and without 
that most likely you end up with a CRLF version since MinGW is targeted 
to build native windows binaries just like the MSVC toolchain ...

anyway, I'm aware that the prob mainly exists because there's no svn 
binary yet available for MSYS/MinGW (at least I'm not aware of any).

Also see that I personally have no prob with this - I have a Linux box 
as well as Cygwin which both do the 'right' (LF) checkout for MSYS ... 
(and of course I've also dos2unix/unix2dos binaries).

I have now also posted to the subversion list if they are willing to 
support override of eol style with checkout too (as possible with 
export), and so far got one interesting reply about how git handles it:
