Hi all.

I just tired to build the installer from the CVS when
I ran into a problem with make. Cygwin's version of
make pukes out if the case of a file differs from
what is expected in a build rule. Here is a quick
example.

BASH.EXE-2.03$ ls
MER.C     Makefile  error.c

BASH.EXE-2.03$ cat Makefile
SHELL=/bin/sh

%.o: %.c
        @echo converting $? to $@

all: error.o mer.o

BASH.EXE-2.03$ make
converting error.c to error.o
make: *** No rule to make target `mer.o', needed by `all'.  Stop.


Can make be fixed to not be case sensitive under cygwin?
