The typicaly way that I build on case-insensitive filesystems is like

   cvs checkout ccvs
   cd ccvs
   mkdir objdir
   cd objdir
   ../configure && make && make check

this means that all of the derrived files are in the ccvs/objdir
subdirectory. If I am going to build for multiple architectures
out of the same set of sources, I have been known to use the
following directory names:

    obj.macosx2     # MacOS 10.2
    obj.macosx3     # MacOS 10.3
    obj.solsparc9   # Solaris 9 on Sparc hardware
    obj.solsparc8   # Solaris 8 on Sparc hardware
    obj.solsparc7   # Solaris 7 on Sparc hardware
    obj.aix43       # AIX 4.3
    obj.fbsd42      # FreeBSD 4.2-RELEASE
    obj.fbsd410     # FreeBSD 4.10-RELEASE
    obj.nbsd16      # NetBSD 1.6
    obj.nbsd299     # NetBSD 2.99.15
    obj.rh73        # Redhat 7.3 i386 GNU/Linux 
    obj.fc3         # Fedora Core 3 i386 GNU/Linux
    obj.unicos      # Unicos 9.0 Cray Y-MP EL

instead of 'objdir' as the place where I build and test out of one
checkout of the sources...

Your experience may be different.

I almost never actually build directly in the 'ccvs' directory as it was
checked out (I try it once per release as we are getting close to make
sure it still works).
