You'd have to set LC_ALL=C to be really sure to override everything.  
But I would stay away from doing that globally, because all the 
translation work in gcc and make would go to waste.

I would also suggest that Nicolai report this issue to the flex 
developers.  It's only bound to reappear everywhere case-insensitive 
flex scanners are used.
