    	Perl and control-M's on Win32
    If the Cygwin 'perl' processes a file produced by a Mingw program
    (such as ghc -M), so that the latter has DOS-style line termination,
    the Cygwin 'perl' gets confused and adds extra control-M's.
    This affects
    	a) mkdependC, which processes the .depend file produced by
    		ghc -M
    	b) the perl post-procssing step in ghc/compiler/Makefile,
    		which makes .depend-1 etc from .depend-BASE
    The solution is to sprinkle few
    	binmode( HANDLE );
    statements around in the perl scripts.
    I think they don't affect the Unix version.
