I am struggling with the infamous unix/dos end-of-line '\r\n' vs '\n'

'\r' CR character.
Do I have to convert ALL the downloaded files into the unix format
Nope, what you have to do is you have to /not/ use winzip to unpack the
archives. Use cygwin's command-line tar utility.
I agree with the advice to use tar, but WinZip does have an option
to fix this behavior. From the menu bar, select
Options -> Configuration -> Miscellaneous
Uncheck the "TAR file smart CR/LF conversion" box. (Odd use of
"smart".) Click OK.
Cygwin's 'tar' enables other features you won't find in WinZip and often
need. You're better off using Cygwin's 'tar' for unpacking source tar
