I worked on the DJGPP port of GNU Make (see, which runs on DOS and Windows systems.
The Make test suite does work on both DOS and Windows using the DJGPP
ports of Diff and other GNU software needed to run the tests (Perl,
Bash, Fileutils, Sh-utils, etc.).

The problem you described doesn't happen with the DJGPP port because
the DJGPP port of GNU Diff ignores the CRLF/LF distinction unless it
was given the --binary command-line switch.
