Sometimes your installer will bundle text files with different end-of-line characters than the platform you are installing to understands You can convert plain text files in DOS/MAC format to Unix format with the dos2unix action.

  <dos2unix>
     <files>*/*.sql;*/*.sh;*.ascii</files>
  </dos2unix>

You can find more information about this action in the Unix manual page for the dos2unix command.
