Migrating repository from Windows to UNIX and eol-style

I'm trying to migrate some source code repositories that were created on
Windows XP to FreeBSD. The svnadmin dump and load work well, but in the
dump file, the source files end up with visible CRs at the end of each
file and when I checkout the individual files from BSD, they also
contain CRs. If possible, I'd like to remove the CRs in the migration
and not have to do a massive revision at either end. I've read the
discussion in the Subversion book about svn:eol-style and I was hoping
that by setting svn:eol-style to LF on the Windows side I could do have
the svnadmin dump eliminate the CRs. However, it seems that propset
only works on client files, in other words I can't do

svn propset svn:eol-style LF c:/path/to/repos

Any suggestions? If it makes any difference, I have svn 1.2.3 on
Windows and 1.3.2 on FreeBSD [no, it's not a typo].
