I am seeing issues on EWS with patching WebCore.vcproj on the mac based bots and GTK+.
Patching with non-matching line endings is a pain.
The way I addressed the issue in the EWS like systems that I built was partly by rules, partly by software:
The rules are:
1. All text files in the system would be required to have the svn:eol-style property set to native.
2. All files that appear as text files, but for whatever reason cannot have the svn:eol-style property set to native should have svn:mime-type property set to something like application/octet-stream.

The software would use flip or a similar tool to convert the line-endings in the patch to the configuration native to the architecture the buildbot runs in before application.

This should not be that hard to implement. I am volunteering to help.
