What is pkgsrc's position wrt. case insensitive file systems?
I noticed that cross/avr-libc fails to build on such a system (because it 
installs both of share/doc/avr-libc/man/man3/PRI[xX]16.3 and similar files).
Should such packages be marked as non-case-insensitive-safe?

I've had a bizarre error scenario or two in the past,
which a NFS volume mounted on NetBSD from an OS X server.
I think marking problematic packages as such would help,
but there's no infrastructure for that (yet).
