Did you read the cvs2svn FAQ [1] about dealing with line endings?

The correct answer depends on whether you have marked your files
correctly as text vs binary in CVS. If yes, then you can use

If not, then there are a whole bunch of cvs2svn options that you can use
to fix things up during the conversion.

Normally for text files, one prefers native line endings. This means
that when the file is checked out under Windows you get CRLF; when
checked out under linux you get LF. Files with svn:eol-style=native are
stored in the SVN repository using canonical line endings, namely LF,
and translated upon checkout.
