This might have been the right thing to do (or as good as what I did).

svn --force propset svn:eol-style native --targets ~/imperius/files.txt

--force was required because of the inconsistent line endings. I ran  
this locally. However, svn diff was then showing every line of every  
file as being altered.

When I fixed the line endings and set the property, svn diff showed  
only the property changes and no content changes. E.g.:

Property changes on: NOTICE.txt
Name: svn:eol-style
    + native

For unknown (unfathomable?) reasons, the commits turned out to be a  
different matter (apologies for all the noise). So, in the end, either  
approach might have been equivalent...

Might have worked better if I had used the url form of files and made  
the updates on the server (rather than propset and then commit). E.g.:

svn --force propset svn:eol-style native --message "fix eol-style"
