If 'renaming script' renames the files and modifies
contents with same edits. And 'renaming script' runs before build
process has a chance of including everything should be
fine in OS400 land. Or am I still missing something?

OS400 build shell scripts already use 'sed' and 'grep', besides 'tr',
'basename', cat', 'echo' and others, so creating the 'renaming
script' won't introduce new dependencies for the OS400 build process.
