Could someone tell me which configurations of shell and perl
successfully work with the make/tests perl scripts?
MSYS which I am using presently is not very successful.

This question is too general to answer specifically (in particular, I
don't know enough about MSYS to tell anything intelligent).  All I can
say is that you need a coherent set of tools, so that, for instance,
they all handle the end-of-line nuisance consistently.

Even using a native win32 perl, GNU diff etc would result in the same
test failures if the base files were in LF format.

When you (or anyone else on address@hidden) run the tests on
MS-Windows how do you avoid these LF discrepancy issues?  Or do people
only run them on native unices?

Best regards
