Looks correct.

Hmm, there is a patch in the cygwin sources (AFAIR) to handle this, but it seems...
Additional it may be neccessary to use 'CYGWIN=check_case:strict' to avoid this, so
INSTALL will not be found if you call 'make install', the 'normal' workaround is to
use the direct targets: 'make install.perl' then also the manpages will not be installed.

I will need some days, I'll try to test at the weekend.

Hmmm, lets see what is going on with perl-5.8.
