I have downloaded two different versions of GNU make for Windows.
Both reply
   GNU Make version 3.78.1, by Richard Stallman and Roland McGrath.
   Built for Windows32

One version comes from
The other comes from Analog Devices with a lot of compilers and other

Now I discover that the version from unisutils are case-insensitive on file
and the one from Analog is case-sensitive.

How can that be?

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

Is there a possibility to control the case-sensitivity behaviour?
People use Window does seldom case about filename case
and I may find the the file name case is different from PC to PC.
I would like the make to work on all PCs.
Any hints.

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.
