64-bit Windows is one of the commonest platforms that can be used for 
software development. The problems with building AOO on it may 
discourage a lot of potential developers.

Thanks for looking into it. It appears to probably be, ultimately, an 
issue with TortoiseSVN mangling line endings. I am redoing the checkout
