It may also be because NetBSD interprets both rockridge and joliet
extentions at the same time. Been there, on a CD mastered with
'-J -R'  'ls' showed only 'Makefile' (and this is correct) but 'ls Makefile'
and 'ls makefile' both worked (where the second should have failed.
The consequence was that 'make' used 'makefile' instead of 'Makefile',
and pkgsrc doesn't like that :)
