Hmm, there are three issue:

1. devel/cvs v.s. deve/CVS
2. converters/p5-jcode v.s. converters/p5-Jcode
3. lang/nawk/files/makefile v.s. lang/nawk/files/Makefile

About 1, We can prevent by doing cvs export or getting tarball not contain CVS.
About 2, Hmm.
About 3, We can prevent by renaming Makefile or makefile to another name.

All three issue are naming issue.  Not framework's issue.

BTW, nfs client of Interix is very strange, buggy.
It allow co-existence of cvs and CVS.  And can change directory p5-jcode and
p5-Jcode.  So, about directory, case-sensitive.
But about file, sometime case-sensitive and sometime case-insensitive.
