I did some investigation.

With today's SVN there are no source files with bad line-endings.

After doing 'cd main;' : no bad line-endings.

After doing 'cd new-dir; forrest seed site' : no bad line-endings there.

Now there are bad files in $FORREST_HOME./build/plugins/org.apache.forrest.plugin.pdf-output/
Even the file has bad line-endings. Probably because the plugin was
downloaded and the remote package has these DOS line-endings.

Does the Ant target "unpack-plugin" need to fix line-endings for the relevant local OS?
