To recap the situation.

<fixcrlf> will use CR as line separator on any Mac, including on Macs
that run MacOS X.  OS X obviously deals with all kinds of line
separators but its native separator (including Java's line.separator
system property) is a LF.

The real solution probably would be to patch <fixcrlf> to base its
decision on the line.separator property, but I'm really concerned
about backwards compatibility since this behavior is part of <fixrclf>
since Ant 1.1 and has been wrong since then as well - IIRC the first
(pre-)releases of OS X have already been available in 2000.
