Ugh...

What exactly is this package? zip does preserve case on Unix.  You option,
if you want to take it, is to unzip the archive, find out the correct names
for each file, rename them, and make tar.gz out of that.

That's about as unpristine as you can get :-) Not the same file names, not
the same format... I hope at least the code is the same...
