there are some defines in UPPERCASE with the same name in lowercase
typedef float cl_float
happy number crunching

Yeah, CL naming scheme causes quite a lot of naming collisions in non-case sensitive languages (such as Delphi).
OpenGL seems to have a lot less collisions, because only the function names + types are able to collide, and it seems unlikely that you'd have new functions called "glInt()", "glEnum()" etc. The constants + type names can't collide because they start with "GL_" or "GL".
I think we're stuck with the current system now, so the way I work around it in Delphi is to have all the types prefixed with "T", which is a normal Delphi convention, and leave all the constants as they are:
Tcl_char = ShortInt;
Tcl_uchar = Byte;
This allows one rule to prevent the collisions, which seems easier to handle than just renaming the specific names that collide.
