You could strip the carriage returns with tr, sed, perl, dos2unix,
etc.  Here's an example:

tr -d '\r' < postgres.sql > fixed.sql  # or pipe into psql

What kind of system did you create the dump on?  How did you transfer
the file?  If you can figure out how the carriage returns got there
then you might be able to prevent it from happening in the future.
