[Rd] Problem with WARNING...headers with CRLF line endings

Dear all,

When running R CMD check on Windows XP to test my package I get the 
following warning message:

"* checking line endings in C/C++/Fortran sources/headers ... WARNING
Found the following sources/headers with CR or CRLF line endings:

The problem is that this file is created by the compiler AUTOMATICALLY 
during the compilation process, and since the file is created by VC++ on 
WinXP, it will always have CRLF line endings.

Thus my question is:
- Is it really necessary to issues this warning message?
- If yes, could it be suppressed on Windows XP, since there it should 
obviously be no problem.

One more issue:
While I have always received this warning on my WinXP installation, for 
some lucky reason the warning did until now not appear on the 
Bioconductor Windows server, see BioC 2.6 with R-2.11.1:

However, for some reason on BioC 2.7 running R-2.12.0 this warning does 
appear, see:
For this reason I would  appreciate if there would be a possibility to 
suppress this warning message.

Thank you in advance.
Best regards
