But is there an easier way of finding out what files had inconsistent
EOL styles short of doing an import?  That was the most painful part
of the process.  In the end, these were text files, files we'll want
to be able to diff and bring down and edit with text editors in
Windows and in Linux, so it was important to get them into a
consistent style.

You are correct. The -c was on the gzip, not the svadmin dump
