If they're binary, there shouldn't be anything looking at their line ending style. Line ending style is a concept applicable only to text files. I suspect you have asked Subversion to corrupt these files by setting the "svn:eol-style" property to some value on these files. So you should delete that property from these files, then replace them with good copies of the files. Don't set svn:eol-style on binary files.
