to address issues with files in exiv2/config and test/*.sh on Cygwin.

Reported by Robin Mills:

I encourage you to use SVN eol-style LF on all your files. At work last year I put that on every file.
Total happiness followed. We were doing Windows/CE and Linux/Embedded and experiencing lots of misery from this.
This setting fixed everything instantly. DevStudio is happy with LF (and even mixtures of line endings).
No Windows editor which demands CRLF should ever be used for anything (notepad.exe).
And of course almost every Linux tools hate CRs.
So LF=Lovely Finish. CR=Crazy Result.

I'm going to mark this resolved. I believe I dealt with this years ago. For example:

615 rmills@rmillsmbp:~/gnu/exiv2/trunk/test $ svn proplist bugfixes-test.sh 
Properties on 'bugfixes-test.sh':
616 rmills@rmillsmbp:~/gnu/exiv2/trunk/test $ svn propget eol-style bugfixes-test.sh 
617 rmills@rmillsmbp:~/gnu/exiv2/trunk/test $
