If a file only works with crlf line endings then that is what the file
should contain. Sometimes people use mac or linux checkouts on
windows. For example, we shouldn't require users to download boost
twice if they use it on both windows and linux. The .tar.gz and
.tar.bz2 downloads should work everywhere.
