I know that the different line endings can be a problem. I know that some

svn propset svn:eol-style LF configure.ac

This system also can work in reverse, so when a windows user checks out the 
source code from the central repository they get windows line endings although 
the central repository has unix line endings.
svn propset svn:eol-style native configure.ac
For the sake of autotools, I'd do the former, as autotools can only be run with Unix shells anyway, so Windows line endings are never relevant.

Btw, most advanced text editors in Windows respect Unix line endings and don't mangle them.
