So then you will need to correct that situation. You can either
remove or rename one of the files. You can do so either by checking
out to a case-sensitive file system, such as the ones you usually
have on Linux systems, or if no such system is available, you can
also do the rename or delete by using repository URLs:

svn rm \
http://www.example.com/path/to/Manifest.mf \
-m "Removing duplicate Manifest.mf"


svn mv \
http://www.example.com/path/to/Manifest.mf \
http://www.example.com/path/to/Manifest2.mf \
-m "Renaming duplicate Manifest.mf to Manifest2.mf"

Now checkouts on Windows, Mac OS X and other places with case-
insensitive filesystems should be possible.
