__ctype_ptr__ has been introduced into newlib July 2008.  It's available
ever since.  It has been introduced into Cygwin with all developer
snapshots later than that, and officially with the first 1.7.0 test
release.  It was never introduced into Cygwin 1.5, though, given that
the last version, 1.5.25-15 was release in June 2008.

So, if you got this error message, it means you were running an
application built for 1.7 under a 1.5 Cygwin DLL.
