I am working with TortoiseSVN and Cygwin on Windows. Since the
`config.guess` file is a shell script --- at least to my knowledge ---
it cannot be executed natively as Windows does not provide a Bourne-like
shell. At least the shell of Cygwin cannot cope with the Windows line
endings, and also it seems strange for me that other shell
implementations for Windows would.

It would make more sense to me to set `svn:eol-style=LF` for this file.

Kind regards,

Sincerely yours,
