I've been using NAnt and relatively standard editors (Vim and Emacs  
are 'relatively' cross-platform) and then as the other folks have  
already mentioned Subversion can be used to set properties on files  
to ensure line-ending standardization.

The rub really comes when you need to work with developers that use  
Visual Studio 2005 (exclusively! >=[) then it's either usually a case  
of running their existing project files through prj2make and hoping  
for the best or making your case for Nant or something like Premake/
