SDCC should emit a warning if the case of the filename

While Windows doesn't care many non-MS operating
systems do. These systems treat files with different
casing as different files.
So compiling of sources written under Windows fails on
many non-MS systems. And there is not even a warning
for the programmer working under Windows. Not good.
And as a side note on case preference: *If* SDCC has a
choice, header files of CPU derivatives should be
committed with LOWER CASE filenames.
- Using upper case filenames is considered shouting.
- A mix of upper/lower case filenames is difficult to
maintain (especially with filesystems which do case
- all ANSI-C include files use lower case.
- There is little information which can be transmitted
by deliberately using upper or lower case (and one of
them is that a README or INSTALL file is listed on top
in a directory listing (which is spoiled by using upper
case for header files)).
- as the case insensitive systems usually do not have a
good track record of preserving cases any information
which could have been associated with cases has to be
