Why is there a need for this?  The Make test suite calls "diff -c" to
compare the expected output with the actual one; a well-ported Diff
will compare two files which are identical except for the Unix- vs
Wndows-style end-of-line format issue as being identical.  Why doesn't
it happen in the OP's case?
