Thanks, this should be fixed. But I don't think the case
insensitive FS is the issue. I've been assured that wmii and
libixp build fine on Darwin/OS-X's case-insensitive HFS. The
problem with CIFS, I think, is mandatory file locking, which
among other things forbids unlinking a file which is already
opened. Normally, you can unlink the .o file and write a .O file
in its place, but if the loader still has the .o file of the
same name open, that won't work on CIFS.
