FNM_CASEFOLD is problematic to support and I don't see adding it in the near/forseeable future. However I do wonder if we'd lose a lot of out-of-the-box compatibility relative to what we have now; in many cases, compiling without case-insensitive matching working might be preferable to not compiling at all. Is anyone willing to take up a task of checking which packages in pkgsrc or other 'supported' packages are using FNM_CASEFOLD unconditionally and how much work it would be to get patches upstream to make the use conditional on #ifdef FNM_CASEFOLD?
