Well, it's more than one setting that you'll need to make in the
client-side config file:

enable-auto-props = yes

*.c = svn:eol-style=LF
*.h = svn:eol-style=LF

Note that you must specify each extension for which you want the EOL
translation to occur. (Do not specify all files by writing "*"
because it will mess up your binary files when EOL translation is
applied to them.)

There are scripts to help you massage existing repo files to match
your new rules.
