Look up "propset" and "eol-style".   In particular, in the [auto-props] 
section of my configuration file I have a number of lines of the form

*.c = svn:eol-style=native
*.txt = svn:eol-style=native
*.pl = svn:eol-style=native;svn:executable

I do this both in Windows and in Linux so that I don't have files with 
only ^J when I check them out under Windows.

You can also add this property manually after the files are committed:

svn propset svn:eol-style=native file1 file2 ...

Since you are seeing ^M now, you will need to do this manually for the 
affected files.

Other useful commands:

svn proplist file
svn propget svn:eol-style file

where "file" is the name of the file you are looking at.
