I think that is a lost cause.  You cannot even checkout the sources to
case insensitive filesystem because of the conflict between
"src/gnu/dist/CVS" and "src/gnu/dist/cvs".

"pkgsrc" has similar problems while "/usr/pkg" and "/var/db/pkg*" can
happily reside on a case insensitive filesystem. I solved that on my
Mac OS X system by NFS mounting "pkgsrc" from the NetBSD server.
