   I am not sure what is the best solution either. I was just trying to
   get the kernel routines that appeared to be using c library functions
   to use a standard one instead of rolling their own. I agree with you 
   about the locale issues, but so far the file system code is us centric.
   So what is better? Let the filesystem code use a single strncasecmp,
   or let each filesystem roll their own? In reality the majority of

Depends on what they need to mimic the original behavior, which is
necessary to find the right files.

   filesystems are developed in the states anyway?

Each Amiga FS version (OFS, FFS, FFS-Dircache) comes in two flavours,
one US-centric (which does not upcase the upper half characters for
comparison and the hashing function) and an "international" one, using
ISO-8859-1's rules for upcasing. (Or was it downcasing?)

I'm not sure wether the NetBSD AmigaOS reading code implements it,
