Interesting, I hadn't seen that before - thanks!

BTW, pkgsrc on Mac OS X does not need a case-sensitive file system as
stated in that page.  There are some packages which occasionally don't
follow the POLA, but, in general, we renamed packages so that their
names wouldn't clash with anything else.

I've been using pkgsrc on straight HFS+ for quite some time now.
