ghc/cygwin filename resolution issue.

As Simon M says, if you (or anyone else) felt able to write up a
standalone summary
of what the problem is, and what the solution is, I'd love to add it to
the GHC
FAQ or documentation somewhere.  In my experience, simply explaining the
clearly is quite tricky. (E.g. the cygwin vs mingw issues, described in
the Building Guide,
took me ages to understand well enough to write down.)
