I agree with Eli that we shouldn't need special handling in the
regression tests.  There are three tools involved: make, perl, and diff.
Perl writes the base file, make writes the log file, and diff compares
them.  As long as the first two use the same line ending method, diff
should have no issue regardless of whether it's CRLF or LF.

So, the question is why does make write newlines one way when it writes
"\n", and Perl write newlines the other way when _it_ writes "\n"?

And, is there any way to get Perl to use the same line ending method as
