Makes the git ignore file case insensitive

For Windows users, it probably doesn't make sense to have .gitignore be case sensitive.

From the docs:

If true, this option enables various workarounds to enable git to work better on filesystems that are not case sensitive, like FAT. For example, if a directory listing finds "makefile" when git expects "Makefile", git will assume it is really the same file, and continue to remember it as "Makefile".

The default is false, except git-clone(1) or git-init(1) will probe and set core.ignorecase true if appropriate when the repository is created.

We probably should take this for GHfW.
