I would consider this a design flaw in WinCvs.

You don't.

Either check the files out on a Unix box, or make it part of your build
process to transform the files from native format to Unix format.

check out file1.native

switch platform:
  case DOS|NT:
    dos2unix file1.native file1.unix
  case UNIX:
    cp file1.native file1.unix
  case MAC:
    mac2unix file1.native file1.unix
    error out unsupported platform

use file1.unix
