Both Earnie and Chris have pointed out that this issue is most likely with
make and the file names it looks for.  Since its looking for specific names, 
its not doing so in a case-insensitive way.  If you'd like to see something
different, it is your option to embellish the current functionality.  
However, it seems quite clear (at least to me) that this is not a LFN/SFN
issue.  I'm just guessing but I expect that this issue won't be getting any
immediate attention from others on the list (I didn't want you to be holding
your breath!;-))
