Apart from the syntax errors (there shouldn't be any spaces around the
equals sign, and the closing single quote is missing), I would expect
"tr" to be more efficient than awk:

	newname=`echo $file | tr A-Z a-z`

Although, you could improve efficiency further (particularly on
Cygwin, where the overhead for spawning commands is substantial) with:

	ls *.tif | awk '{print "r.in.gdal in=" $1 " out=" tolower($1)}' | sh
