package cygwin-d-... case sensitivity problems --

The cygwin-doc-... package has several problems in at least the /usr/share/man/man3 directory where multiple file names differ only in case, i.e., the tar file contains, in this order,


  usr/share/man/man3/jN.3.gz

  usr/share/man/man3/jn.3.gz


The jN.3.gz file contains the roff text and the jn.3.gz file contains a roff .so directive pointing at jN.3.  The file that ends up in man3 is jn.3.gz and jN.3.gz disappears.


The simplest solution would be to just remove jn.3.gz and similar .so files from the tarball.  This would at least allow the roff text files to exist.

FMI - where was the tarball created?  It certainly was not on a computer with Windows and case insensitivity.
