Also if the filesystem isn't case sensitive, make itself can be case 
sensetive. For example the mingw32 make.exe.

Maybe the file extension that is added for executables is not correct or 
the environment variable PATH is not available.

The only thing you can do is debug the Makefile using 'make -p' to print 
the internal database and check in Makefile what the check was and what the 
used values are by looking at the internal database of make.
