Anything special to do if it is impossible to use pristine sources?

I have a packages where the source is distributed i zipfiles with only
one-case 8.3 filenames (yuck). Everything in the sources uses
filenames which differs in case. what shall I do?

Peter er den mindst gamle af de gammeldags usenettere, og moderator på
