I'd vote for this one. Or get gcc to somehow check the case of the filename
found. This is a portability error, and will cause your code to break when
compiled on a case-sensitive system.

I continue to run into this with code developed on Windows that's ported to
Linux. Not just C/C++, but also web files that are moved from an IIS server
to Apache on a case-sensitive server. Just the other day I ran into this
with some HTML documentation for a game addon that I moved to my Apache
server for the benefit of other users. The background image file was
referenced in the body style with the wrong case, so the page rendered with
the client's default background color, quite ugly.
