That's certainly reasonable, but I think the word ACCEPTABLE_LICENSES is already case sensitive, along with everything else, and this is not routinely pointed out. #> make Package make: don't know how to make Package. Stop While I understand the notion of being friendly to people who are on the edge of knowing enough to cope, it would never have occured to me that licenses would be interpreted in a case-insensitive manner. But then I realize I'm dealing with a programming language system and some users might not. Perhaps a resolution is to have an error target when the license check fails that does case-insensitive compares and issues a helpful message.
