Don't forget that if you check files out onto a Windows system, all
text files will be terminated with CRLF, and if you checkout onto a
MAC, they will be CR-terminated. I seem to remember that make barfs on
makefiles that aren't LF-terminated (or maybe I'm just remembering
something completely incorrectly).
