Doesn't GIT have some sort of setting to handle this?

In SVN you would set the eol-style property to something like 'native'.
Then, SVN would handle eol differences automatically and ensure such
differences were not considered in version diffs etc. This eliminates
spurious differences caused by editors on different platforms that use
different eol styles.
