    I still claim that there is no portable way to
    use MAKE-PATHNAME (even if the problems with case are involved),
    because there are other problems with things like the lengths of
    strings and what characters are valid in the various pathname fields
    on different file systems. 

I think there is a big difference between "it is possible to write
non-portable programs using MAKE-PATHNAME" and "it is impossible
to write any useful portable programs using MAKE-PATHNAME."
