I always checkout with -kb (and that's the advice nt/INSTALL gives).

But the original question still stands: is there any reason not to
convert nt/makefile.w32-in to Unix EOLs?  Will something in the build
procedure break?

[...time passes...] Ah, I see this entry in nt/ChangeLog:

    2000-09-03  Andrew Innes  <address@hidden>

            * makefile.w32-in: Change to DOS line endings.

So I guess there _was_ a good reason for this, at least in the past,
and we better leave it that way, at least until after the release.
