Having run into this a couple of times, it certainly looks the likely cause.
may want to try cloning as follows:

 foo$ git config --global core.autocrlf false
 foo$ git clone http://darcs.haskell.org/ghc.git

Unfortunately i cannot change the global autocrlf flag because of
other projects. I edited the sync-all script to fix the problem, but
is good to know that line conversions may be the cause. It would be
nice if sync-all (and other scripts) were written in portable Perl.
Perl runs well on Windows whereas msys is brittle.

ok. Surely you could just temporarily set it as such, followed by config'ing it for that repo only rather than have it be global? I suspect tweaking that one file instead will just be the first of
many such tweaks..
