Careful -  
 if you already have files named
 "IMPORTANT.FILE" and "important.file" 
 then the existing "important.file"
 will get clobbered!

(You may want to use the -i option to mv)

Or you can do it recursively:

for OLD in `find -type f -name '*[A-Z]*'`
  DIR=`dirname $OLD`
  NEW=`basename $OLD | tr A-Z a-z`
  echo $OLD $DIR/$NEW # <- Just testing
# uncomment for the real thing:
# mv -i $OLD $DIR/$NEW

... will rename all files in all directories 
under the current directory - BE CAREFUL!!!

I really don't think you need to rename all
your files, however, you just need to make 
sure the case matches exactly in all your
search path, etc.

Another option:

The include directive can also contain an 
absolute or relative path to the file, 
for example:

{$INCLUDE /home/baikov/projects/INCLUDE/defs.inc}

... or whatever the correct path would be.

This is certainly not an elegant or portable solution,
but it might help to find the problem.
