If you do the cvs checkout from a windows box it should just work, at
least according to section 9.2 in Version Management with CVS by

"There are two issues with using CVS to store binary files. The first is
that CVS by default converts line endings between the canonical form in
which they are stored in the repository (linefeed only), and the form
appropriate to the operating system in use on the client (for example,
carriage return followed by line feed for Windows NT)."

But i think that it only works if the files where correctly commited,
i.e. the file must have *nix LE's if you do the check in from a *nix box
and windows LE's if you do it from a windows box. At least that's my
impression of how it works.
