That's because it makes no sense to do so.  For text files, it is up to
the CVS *client* to convert between the local text file format and the
canonical format that's stored in the repository.  That allows you to
checkout/update/merge/etc. the files on *any* platform with no problem. 
It sounds like you've been using the wrong client for your platform and
thus getting files in the repository that have not been correctly
converted to the canonical form.  The best way to fix that is to get a
correct client and force a commit of all the files, then stop using the
incorrect client.
