Yes, I noticed that. So the problem would be, if a program has included
ctype.h (_ctype.h) then it has the potential to require the symbol,
which does not exist in previous releases.
Having __inline functions sounds reasonable to me, though, because these
functions are really small and may be called frequently. Maybe we can
think out a way of avoiding the addition? It sounds like that
potentially we will have trouble running binaries compiled on 6.3-R on
6.2-R systems, while this is acceptable IMO it is not very interesting
for user community :-)
