That is a bug we should have caught in 6.0.20 but didn't.

Historically .zip has had CRLF line endings and .tar.gz LF. That worked
if you built on Windows but didn't if you built on unix so when Remy
switched from Windows to unix for the build stuff broke but we didn't
catch all of it.

There have been a series of changes recently to fix all of that and I
think (once the current patches are applied) we should be in a position
where you can build on Windows and unix and get the same result.
