I'm having trouble implementing this, I think because of some more basic lisp 
understanding deficiency. 

I'm constructing entries for my-font-lock-keywords by using mapc to work from a 
master list.

The function called by mapc adds a backquoted list to my keyword list. Before 
trying to adjust case sensitivity, it looked like:

(defun add-to-my-keyword-list (input)
   (add-to-list 'my-font-lock-keywords
                ,(;;non-buggy-code here for anchor)
                ,(regexp-opt (cadr input))
                (0 font-lock-keyword-face))))

My trouble is getting (regexp-opt (cadr input)) to properly expand to an 
argument for re-search-forward.

The closest I've been able to come is to use

(lambda (limit)
  (let ((case-fold-search t))
    `(re-search-forward ,(regexp-opt ,@(cadr input)) limit t)))

In this case, (cadr input) is evaluated, but (regexp-opt is not. The 
constructed list reads
(\` (re-search-forward (\,@ (regexp-opt

Is this an easy fix?
