While I have not checked on VAX, on both Alpha and Itanium the module

Maybe "mainly". But as we all know, the module name space is separated
from the file name space. Independent of ODS5 and/or process settings
like case sensitive mode and/or DECC features for ODS5, for C sources,
lower case module names will show as soon as someone has a '#pragma
module lowercase' and compiles with /case=as_is with a recent C compiler.

Agreed, on VMS the module name space is separate from the filesystem.

As pointed out before, GNU make does not have a way to make that distinction. So GNU make can only use case sensitive module name comparisons on VMS with ODS-5 support.

It is something that can be looked at for a future enhancement after some tests are added for the expected behavior.
