In specifying pathnames with updatedb (--{{local,net}paths, prune{fs,paths}},
there is no way to ignore case  --something considered necessary for search
options on 'find', even though said implementation is flawed(inconsistent)
(see http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?32976 ).

While this could be considered an RFE if updatedb and find were not in the
same package, they fact that they are means updatedb's implementation is
inconsistent with find's would would place this issue in the realm of a design
deficiency (flaw/bug).

Note: fixing this bug depends on bug #32976 being fixed first.
