I'm afraid it can't.  Unix is case-sensitive, why shouldn't `make' be?

Well...  I suppose you could do something about it if you were willing
to get your Makefiles non-portable and use GNU make only, by using
$(shell ) magic.  Or you could write a script to generate the rules
and get them included in the Makefile with AC_SUBST_FILE or automake's
include feature.
