This solves only one half of the problem however.
One still needs to specify the path in <exec> using
the correct case for the var name on Windows.

We could I guess create properties with the names
of the environment vars (using the env.NAME'sname
convention, so one would do ${env.PATH's name} to
get the actual name of the upper-cased PATH env. var),
but that's a clunky, no?

Maybe we need explicit <path> and <libpath> elements
in <exec> to deal with such issues. --DD
