The extra character '\r' screws up the parsing because it was not
accounted for in the logic to recognize multi-line values and
indentation based block separation.

What do you think of a kind of piped filter as follows:

(define (call-with-input-file-eol-crlf->lf proc port)
  (let* ((port-pair (pipe))
         (input-port (match port-pair ((in . out) in)))
         (output-port (match port-pair ((in . out) out))))
    (letpar ((transcoder
              (let loop ((line (get-line port)))
                (unless (eof-object? line)
                  (write-line (string-trim-right line #\return) output-port)
                  (loop (get-line port)))
                (flush-output-port output-port)))
             (result (proc input-port)))
            (close-output-port output-port)
            (close-input-port input-port)

Then instead of calling (read-cabal port) I would call
(call-with-input-file-eol-crlf->lf read-cabal port).
