This is wrong as not all FSs are case insensitive.  In fact HFS+ can
be case sensitive too.  I think you need better check than just saying
all Darwin is case insensitive.  This is just like using FAT32 on
Linux.  In fact I think HAVE_DOS_BASED_FILE_SYSTEM is incorrect also
for NTFS as it can also be case sensitive.
