Summary: Build fails on OS X with case sensitive fs

Initial Comment:
When compiling python from svn on a Mac OS X with a 
case sensitive file system I get the following build
error:

running build
running build_ext
db.h: found (4, 3) in /opt/local/include/db4
db lib: using (4, 3) db-4.3
sqlite: found /usr/include/sqlite3.h
/usr/include/sqlite3.h: version 3.1.3
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./setup.py", line 1507, in <module>
    main()
.
.
  File "./setup.py", line 1088, in addMacExtension
    raise RuntimeError("%s not found" % name)
RuntimeError: MacOS not found
make: *** [sharedmods] Error 1




It can be fixed by either renaming the file:
  Mac/Modules/macosmodule.c 
to
  Mac/Modules/MacOSmodule.c 

or applying the following patch :

The rename works for me. I've been able to compile with and without
the --enable-framework configure option and both versions can import
and use MacOS correctly.

I've implemented the rename I suggested earlier in revision 50832.

Could you please confirm that this does actually solve your problem?

Could you please test if renaming Mac/Modules/macosmodule.c to Mac/
Modules/MacOS.c solves your problem?  With that rename the build still works 
for me, but I don't have a case-sensitive filesystem.

The patch is incorrect, as this would rename user visible name of the python 
extension ('import MacOS' would stop working). 

The rename would be correct.
