This is a bug report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.36 running under perl 5.11.0.

Module::Build is super slow in mod->prepare and so forth for cygwin and Win32
because of a bad File::Spec->case_tolerant implementation.

The patch in a forthcoming attachment is a significant performance
improvement of my initial case_tolerant patch,
which is esp. noticable on Module::Build
