Ah, right. That's unfortunate. I will change the name of one of
these files, but I'm not sure how much longer I'm willing to
support this obviously non-POSIX-compliant filesystem...

  Joy. Will fix.

  Part of the issue is that I have lost access to my MacOS account,
and cannot test for build failures on MacOS anymore. If I could
have a shell account on a MacOS machine, it would make things
much easier (hint, hint). :)

  Thanks for the report,
