RE: CRLF to LF Issue

OK, thanks for the hint. I've hacked out reference to O_BINARY in the
function 'create_output_file', and that, amongst other hacks, seems to have
done the trick.

Cygwin patch always creates output files in binary (LF EOL).  This solves
more problems (discussed earlier in this list and elsewhere) than it
produces so I'm not inclined to revert that change.  If you don't like it,
use a Windows native patch or unix2dos.
