See the bug I pointed to, where John explained that OS X filesystems
can be either case-sensitive or case-insensitive.

FWIW, this is also true on Cygwin:


https://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/using-specialnames.html#pathnames-casesensitive

I was under the impression that most or all Cygwin users do use
case-sensitive file names.

I don't know for sure, but I would guess the opposite, simply because using case-sensitivity requires reading the documentation and changing a registry entry.

But if that's not the reality, then yes, a patch to add a run-time
test for Cygwin will also be welcome.

The attached patch attempts to do this for both Cygwin and OS X. I don't have access to an OS X system, so someone else will have to test the OS X part.
