Yes, we have.

Yes, either of these would work, although I'd expect Diff to ignore
line-end format by default.  Earnie, what port of Diff you used?  For
that matter, what port of Perl?

I don't like the alternative with Make producing Unix-style EOLs: it
will be very tricky because some of the output comes from programs
Make invokes, and we cannot always fix all of those.

Also, there's another solution: run all known good output files
through unix2dos before running the test suite.
