Subject Re: another solution for EOL problems

I believe the release happens on a Windows box, and as a result all of
the text files inside the .tar.gz archive will have the \r\n line
terminator. I've run into this problem myself, and never used a
release package ever since ;-).

The easiest way for me is to check out the stuff directly from
CVS. CVS takes care of line endings automatically, so I don't have to
worry about it myself.
