Earnie - Thank you for good answers.

I have now tried the mingw32-make version 3.80 from the distribution you
pointed on.

It solves my case-sensitivity problem,
but it still wonder if I can control the case sensitivity at run-time?

It dont solve the foreground-background problem,
but I have found a work-around by combining the critical commands in a BAT

Different preprocessor flags that include or don't include code specific
to the nature desired or not desired.

Simple answer, is to make sure the version you use is configured for
case insensitivity.  Perhaps, would
work better for you.  It is configured with case insensitivity.
