Some packages will complain about it, or not build. Because a case
sensitive FS simplifies things, the pkgsrc Guide recommends enabling
it when available, rather than explaining to users why a package
failed to build over and over again.

What's wrong with enabling case sensitivity for you? On Interix in
particular, case sensitive NTFS actually speeds up file access a bit
too, because NTDLL isn't doing a directory scan to find some files.
(I wrote the part related to Interix.)
