If your port is Cygwin-savvy (i.e. is a Cygwin application and uses Cygwin
for its file I/O) then the question falls back to the mount tables.
The Setup option controls how the mount table is set up (binmode vs
textmode mounts). Any program that opens a file in text mode (i.e. without
specifically opening in binary mode) that is linked against cygwin1.dll
obeys the mount table and, if on a textmode-mounted directory, eats up the
CRs. If that causes a problem, either remount in binmode, fix your program
or link against binmode.o
As for a Cygwin-port of ksh, there's none I know of - but please feel free
