Changed all the lineends from 0x0A (unix linefeeds) to 0x0D,0x0A (DOS
linefeeds) (which makes every line different). Normally this is a
problem with editors silently converting your files, but sometimes
also VCSes. Not helped by the fact that some files from upstream are
'mixed line-ends', which can confuse editors.

Right, but you (well, your editor, no doubt) added some more :-)

The debian package has a huge whitespace patch to fix this irritation,
but Stacho has not merged it upstream yet :-(

No, it's not your fault. I recall this being an issue already. Therion
build-depends on itself, so it builds OK if it's already installed on the
build machine (and the library catalogue hasn't changed between what's
installed and what's building), but not in a clean environment. Which
means I don't understand how the current debian builds are building at
all (because they should be done in just such an environement)

I was going to fix it properly by generating the catalogue in a less
crufty way, but have clearly not got round to it.
