In relation to this, ARISAWA Akihiro reported that the compface.el
module bundled with Gnus doesn't work on Windows.  It is because
the line-break code is converted into CRLF by the recent Emacs 22
when communicating with processes, and at least the external
"icontopbm" program does not work with it.

I've fixed it in the Gnus trunk and the v5-10 branch so that
`coding-system-for-write' is bound to `raw-text-unix'.
