I just hacked together a quick branch in order to test merging of the
code and see what kind of overlap there was between the multiple
streams of development there were. Hence the reason I called it 'test'.

Don't pay much attention to my line ending 'choices'. They were mostly
directory based and only intended to remove erroneous conflicts.

No, I had no way of building it even if I wanted to. Just wanted to
make the test merge easier, no attempt made at correctness.

No need for that. Just set the correct properties on the files in svn
and it will take care of all line ending nonsense. See:
We should set svn:eol-style = native on most files (including all the
source code and documentation). Then svn:eol-style = CRLF on windows
only files that have to be that way.
Given that the windows port needs quite a bit of work, and the autoconf
stuff is essentially finished, I would prefer if we could merge
autoconf before win32. Although I can't build the win32 I'd be happy to
help out with any extra autoconf work required.
If others are ok with this, then maybe it would be better to work off
my autoconf branch for the new win32 work in order to reduce merging
