 I'm interested in the problem of checking out the pkgsrc tree.  On
 Darwin (macOS Sierra 10.12.1), immediately after a clone or checkout,
 "git status" reports the following:
   modified:   www/seamonkey/patches/patch-mozilla_gfx_ycbcr_yuv__row__arm.s
 I don't intend to build that package, but it messes up my work because
 Git thinks I've modified a file that I haven't.
 If one of the conflicting .s or .S files could be renamed to something
 that differs in more than just case (e.g., rename the .s patch file to
 .s_), then it would fix the checking-out problem and make the building
 problem no worse than it currently is.
