RE: Case-insensitive checks on Mac OS X 10.8.x XPASSing

Which file system do you run your tests on? (it is easy to create case
sensitive filesystems manually, but there is no platform independent
way to detect them)

The test should only run ok on case sensitive file systems or when
apr's truename support works (which currently isn't the case on os/x /
Darwin)

Subject: Case-insensitive checks on Mac OS X 10.8.x XPASSing
When I run make check on Mac OS X 10.8.2, it looks like the
case-sensitivity checks now XPASS:

XPASS: op-depth-test 23: test_case_rename on case (in)sensitive system
XPASS: copy_tests.py 102: case-only rename

I'm wondering if the case-preserving semantics in 10.8 changed - as it
looks like rename will succeed now in 10.8. (My filesystem is still
case-preserving...see below.)

Can someone with 10.7 verify that the tests still XFAIL? Or, is
something else going on?

BTW, on a related note, gmake -j8 was failing for me with:

gmake: *** read jobs pipe: No such file or directory. Stop.

In parallel (har har), I was upgrading to XCode 4.5.1 and I can't
reproduce that error now.... -- justin
