Ha! tools/build/v2/engine/build.bat just has newlines. Yet it has cr/lf
line endings in svn.
So that's why on Windows autocrlf = true is required. It also shows that
conversion's treatment of line endings is inconsistent - apparently
bootstrap.bat does not have CR stripped but tools/build does have them
