Is it intentional that the source tarball
binutils-2.11.90-20010607-src.tar.gz
has DOS (CRLF) line-endings? (For comparison, other[1] recently released source tarballs use Unix line-endings.) It makes building on Unix a right pain...

mingw-runtime-1.0-20010604-src.tar.gz

    MingW Tool Set is designed to support the MS-DOS (<cr><lf>) endings (MS Windows OS). If you want true
    Unix line ending sequence you might try stripping the MS-DOS <cr><lf> line endings via your Unix utilities
    such as VI or some other Unix specific text editor.

    Not a MinGW bug.

    Although your problem may be interesting and causing you problems you wish answers to, it is not a problem with the
    MinGW project. Your BUG report has therefore been deleted.
