Is this something we want to support?  NetBSD made some invasive changes on 
their source tree to be able to support case-insensitive filesystems (like 
renaming 'cvs' to 'xcvs' to avoid clashing with the 'CVS' metadata directory), 
but they support building NetBSD on many different platforms.  We don't support 
that yet, though.

The file in question can be easily renamed, I think.
