I agree that line endings are the likely problem.  I suspect that the average non-SVN-dev building the book from source are a rarity (sorry Thomas -- it just means you're special!).  For such, the workaround you've suggested should be sufficient.  I don't see a reason to change the `svn:eol-style` property to accommodate this scenario, especially when one can also choose to use `svn export --native-eol=LF` on such systems to get the book sources (albeit not in a working copy) into the necessary line-ending format without additional tooling/scripting required.

I have next to no experience with Unix systems, so I found and followed this guide to getting the book to build on my Windows 10 system: 

This works fine for HTML, but I want a PDF. And here it fails with this: 

> make all
xmllint --noout --valid book/book.xml
if ! test -e "../tools/xsl"; then ../tools/bin/find-xsl.py; fi
xsltproc --param fop1.extensions 1 --output book/svn-book.fo \
  `[ -d stylesheets ] && echo stylesheets || echo ../tools`/fo-stylesheet.xsl book/book.xml
Making portrait pages on USletter paper (8.5inx11in)
../tools/bin/run-fop.sh -fo book/svn-book.fo -pdf book/svn-book.pdf
: not foundn/run-fop.sh: 2: ../tools/bin/run-fop.sh:
: not foundn/run-fop.sh: 9: ../tools/bin/run-fop.sh:
../tools/bin/run-fop.sh: 35: ../tools/bin/run-fop.sh: Syntax error: word unexpected (expecting "do")
../tools/Makefile.base-rules:69: recipe for target 'book/svn-book.pdf' failed
make: *** [book/svn-book.pdf] Error 2

I am guessing I am missing something on my Linux sub-system, but what?
