It typically implies that some source module is using ctype *without*
including <ctype.h>. If someone can mail me the name of che module where
the undefined reference is coming from, I can take a look. Until then,
I'll simply ignore these messages just like I ignore hundreds of other
incomplete "bug reports" ;-)

This could be due to an oldver version of newlib which didn't export the
ctype symbols.

This is the life with snapshots. These are distributed so folks like us
can report and possibly fix problems. However, if we can't fix it, we 
also have to assume the responsibility of reporting these in a way that 
helps the maintainers to track it down.
