I have just run into this today while trying to get buildfarm working for MSVC. After some consideration I think an alternative result file is the best solution. I have looked at switches for cnsnt, but they are likely to be fragile at best.

Are you proposing an alternate result file that has a different linefeed
style?  I would really really rather that we not go there, because it
will be impossibly fragile to maintain.  Or are you willing to accept
that the Windows builds will break every time someone changes that
regression test, until someone else with a Windows machine fixes the
result file?

I would find it preferable to make pg_regress compensate for this
issue somehow ...

No, the alternate results file does not use different line feeds, and is as you would wish not sensitive to line-end style. I was careful (I hope careful enough) to make sure that the file I checked in didn't have a single CR in it. It just reflects the results obtained when file is checked out with CRLF line endings and then used for LO input. The alternative as you say is that we make pg_regress perform some sort of dos2unix on the data file. I note that hasn't changed in 4 years.
