libre5.0 + win10 configure error

I always think I solved the problem by chance. So I go back to think the
reason why the old repo code configured failed. It is not possible to cause
the problem by the renamed path and the branch of libreoffice-5-0-6. Over
the next three days, there was no progress on this matter. An accidental
opportunity, I found different unstaged changes in unmodified code repo by
using "git status" in cygwin and gitshell. The version of gitshell is "git
version". Then I clone one code repo by cygwin, another one
by gitshell. The cygwin cloned code is going right. But the gitshell cloned
code will lead to errors as follow:

$ ./ --with-external-tar=/cygdrive/d/sources/lo-externalsrc
--with-ant-home=/cygdrive/d/sources/apache-ant-1.9.5 --enable-pch
--disable-ccache --enable-debug
./ line 1: $':\r': command not found

shift+reset, go to the safe mode, do this:

fsutil file setshortname "Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0" msvc~120 
fsutil file setshortname "Windows Kits" W~Kits 

The shortname is unreadable as Tor Lillqvist-2 said. I will use better name
next time.

There's nothing I can do about this.

Why the code cloned by cygwin and gitshell has different result of
configure. I open the same filename in different repo by UltraEdit. It shows
the difference. The cygwin cloned code is unix format, and the gitshell
cloned code is dos format.
Yes, the first problem and the third problem are caused by the dos format
files cloned by  the gitshell .
